We are looking at additional traffic wardens which are funded by the CCID as well as expanding our social development services for the homeless on the streets.— Tasso Evangelinos, CEO - CCID
We are also looking at additional cleaning in the form of road management repairs, graffiti removal, and substance reduction programme for certain people on the streets.— Tasso Evangelinos, CEO - CCID
