Three business awarded contract to cut County grass at 155 locations

Three businesses will be contracted to look after grass cutting for 155 locations in the County this summer.

Council approved awarding Enviro sweep, Pitt Crew Landscaping and Martin’s Construction and Demolition the $282,514.36 contract on an annual basis, including a fixed 1.5 per cent annual price increase over the three-year contract.

The costs are spread between several County departments and includes grass at facilities, parks and lands as well as cutting required by the fire departments, H.J. McFarland Memorial Home, operations, recreation and community facilities, water and waste water services and the PEC Affordable Housing Corporation.

Picton requires the most work, with an annual cost of $98,840, followed by Bloomfield/Hallowell at $46,901 and Ameliasburgh at $36,270. Wellington comes in at $26,925, followed by Sophiasburgh at $20,059; North Marysburgh at $18,659; Hillier at $16,609; South Marysburgh at $15,224 and Athol at $3,024.

Due to the number of locations throughout the County, and lack of interest in bidders submitting for all wards, it was decided to award the tender by ward to take advantage of lowest prices, based on geography.

“Based on the experience of previous grass cutting contracts, it is also expected the quality of work is better with multiple contractors being held accountable for the work,” noted Matthew Nestorovski, procurement co-ordinator in his report to council.
