Contracts joined

Spallumcheen council voted unanimously to award one contract to Summer Scape Designs

The Township of Spallumcheen is combining two separate landscape contracts into one.

Deciding against the past practice of the separate landscape contracts for different township areas, council voted unanimously to award one contract to Summer Scape Designs at a cost of $1,995 per month.

The township received eight tenders from contractors with Summer Scape the only one coming in under $2,000 a month.

The highest bid was $3,050 a month.

“Staff has reviewed the tenders and is confident that Summer Scape Designs will be able to provide quality and professional service,” said Ed Forslund, the township’s public works manager.

The contract will include landscape maintenance for the township’s municipal grounds, Palisades Park, McLeod Park, Scott Park, Lansdowne Cemetery, Hullcar Cemetery, Springview Lot and Fortune Creek rest area.
