Public property is what the citizens of a nation own and use it in common. For example, community parks and surroundings, sick bay, libraries, government workplaces, railway stations, public toilets and the public transport that we use such as trains and buses. These are all constructed and maintained from the taxes that we pay simply from public money. The government is accountable for sustaining this assets, but it doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t care about maintaining them. As citizens it’s responsibility of us to maintain public property well and preserve them for our future generations.Some people scatter bits of papers everywhere in public parks and along pavements. Pasting notices and advertisements in not allowed spaces.
Some corrupted persons paste advertisements and some draw graffiti even on the walls of the government buildings and public wells. Many government organizations imply great strata management policies to keep the public areas clean. Some people cut the seat covers of buses and trains or paste gum under the seats or draw various designs while using public transport facilities this shows how uncivilized they are and the importance of protecting public property should be taught in schools.
The government is responsible for building and maintaining public property so we as citizens should help the government to maintain these without destroying them, when public property is destroyed government must spend more money to replace them which will affect even the economy of developing countries. Many governments have enforced property maintenance Sydney divisions to manage all public property. People who work in the government sometimes take unwanted calls from the office telephone line and some even steal office equipment this is a waste of public funds.
When people organize a protest for some of their demands, they burn and destroy something. They burn tires in the middle of the road or stop trains by blocking railway lines this causes many problems for other people. As they cannot reach their offices, factories or schools in time, many valuable working hours are lost. This causes great loss to the country.Awareness programs should be conducted in every school and institution depicting the importance of protecting public property. And the police should take necessary steps to arrest people who destroy public property and produce them to the courts for punishments. It’s our duty to protect public property as our own property. People should pay their taxes and contribute to increase government funds. Therefore, we as citizens should work as a team and try to safeguard public property as misuse of public property can cause inconvenience to you as well as others.
