Sample Answer:

Dear Mr Allen Taylor,

I am Cory Gardner, a local resident of Ipswich, Queensland‎, Australia writing on behalf of the residents of the area to notify you about a dilapidated road which is causing unbearable miseries for us.

I work at a local school and teach mathematics to young students. This is the first time I am writing to the municipal office to complain about something. The park street, the only road we use to get off and in the community, was damaged around three months ago when we had a heavy downpour for a week. The roads have many holes, crumbly places and is bellow usable-condition with uneven flagstones.  

We expectantly waited for a month when a team of engineers inspected the road in July. But nothing has been done so far to alleviate our suffering.

I would request you to send a team to probe the condition of the road and take immediate action to have it repaired. We already have had some minor accidents in the past months and would like you to prevent a major one.

Yours sincerely,

Cory Gardner
