The city also awarded a $45,180 contract for lawn care services to Russell Landscape, LLC to handle landscaping at City Hall, the Senior Center, the Towne Green, the Police Department, Public Works and the Recycling Center, right of way downtown on Oak Road, Clower Street, Wisteria Drive and Highway 124 medians.
Funds utilized will be in lieu of what is equivalent or less than a Public Works salary. Public Works no longer has the resources of the inmate work release program due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which was up to four workers per day. Staff is short currently and this will allow us to focus on the historical cemetery, general Public Works tasks and cross train in stormwater maintenance and other job duties.
