Liverpool councillor and Labor candidate for Leppington, Nathan Hagarty, has called on Campbelltown Council to maintain overgrown vegetation at the Bonds Creek Reserve in Willowdale.In a letter to Campbelltown City Council General Manager Lindy Deitz, Mr Hagarty has requested that the site be cleared up and better maintained for the enjoyment of local families.“Over the past few weeks, I have spoken to numerous residents at street stalls, over the phone and at their homes who have complained about the poor state of the reserve. It’s now time for the local council to act,” Cr Hagarty said.
Cr Hagarty said that the untidy and overgrown vegetation, along with the poor maintenance of the reserve, is a hazard for local families, particularly to children and pets.

“Residents have reported seeing snakes and rodents coming from unmaintained scrub. The overgrown vegetation also serves as a tripping hazard for locals using the reserve,” he said.
Cr Hagarty also said that he will continue to fight for local residents to have access to safe recreational areas.“As a local dad, I understand the importance of having safe and well-maintained parks for local families to use in our down-time,” he said.
