City rejects landscaping bid | News, Sports, Jobs
LOCK HAVEN – Lock Haven Public Works workers will continue to mow grass and design city parks throughout the summer.
The city until recently hired the service to do DAD’s landscaping of Jersey Shore.
“You (DADs) have unfortunately given up the business”, said the director of public works, Tony Stopper.
Since the last council meeting, Stopper has sought offers and only received one from Clinton County Landscaping.
“The total price of (Clinton County Landscaping) is more than double that of DADs, so I recommend declining the offer and letting the city staff get on with the mowing this year.” Stopper said.
He said the city could ask again for bids for mowing in 2022 in the fall or winter.
All council members were present at the meeting on Monday evening, which was streamed live on the city’s Facebook and YouTube pages.
