WHILE a lot of fuss is being made over the interim Director of City and Environmental Services (The Press, Wednesday, June 18), all has been very quiet over the appointment of an interim assistant director in the same directorate some months ago, ie the interim assistant director of highways, transport and waste.

So having had a string of directors over recent years, none of whom seemed to stay very long or, in some cases, reside in the city, there are now “interims” with even less of a connection.
