Lewisville Council Receives Four Bids on Town's Seasonal Mowing Contract
March 26, 2008 - The Lewisville Town Council received four bids at its March 4 meeting from parties interested in securing the town's mowing contract for the 2008 season.
Of the four bids received, Dave's Mowing was the lowest at $200 per mow, while Olive Leaf Landscaping and Nature's Backyard Lawn Care both bid $325 per mow. The highest bid, $709 per mow from Ross Lawns and Landscaping, was withdrawn, according to meeting minutes.
Contract specifications require the mowing of all town properties; Lewisville Park, excluding ball diamonds; around the town's water tower, water plant and garage area; at the Houston Brick community center and Freeman Square; and the area on the north side of the Market Street and S.R. 103 intersection. Additionally, weed eating is to be done every other mow, with there being no more than 19 mows per season without further council approval. The successful bidder must also have $1 million in insurance and supply their own equipment and gas.
At the March 4 meeting, the council asked the bidders who were present how much they would charge to mow the ball diamonds. The responses were that Dave's would charge $50 more each mow, while Nature's would add $40 to its mowing fee. The council voted to table further consideration of the bids until the April 1 meeting to allow time to check the bidders' references.
The council also discussed the need to clean up corn stalks at the town park before mowing season.
