The easiest way to get the town council to act is when you email them stating that you are not going to pay the conservancy charges as they are not doing their job. This will make them jump up on their feet and rectify the problem immediately.
I tried it once telling them i am going to pay only when they clean the area. If they are not going to do it daily. I am also not going to pay it monthly. This is with regards to the lift that i take.
Now,when i tested leaving a tissue on the lift railing,within a few hours it is cleared.
