County to contract out mowing work

Following the lead of several other counties, the Lamar County commission agreed last week to contract out right-of-way mowing and litter pick-up on county roads. BCLS of Dacula, Ga. got the contract with a bid of $212,940. The company will pickup litter and mow all areas three times this season. ’We are talking about 273 miles of paved roads, so its a lot. We are doing this in lieu of buying new equipment. It is much, much cheaper to contract it out,’ county administrator Sean Townsend said. Both chairman Charles Glass and commissioner Nancy Thrash pointed out this is a trial. ‘We are hopeful it will work out,’ Glass concluded.
