Mowing of Parks

Update from Dennis Papenmeier

To all,

Some of you have asked me about the mowing schedule for some of the parks in your areas. Please see below the official word from Indy Parks about the status of the mowing contracts that they are finalizing with their mowing contractors this week—all contractors should be out soon to a park near you.

"We are behind in mowing some of our parks this spring due to contract delays with our 13 mowing contractors. The good news is that we completed the contracts for 7 of those contractors last week, and they are out mowing this week. We hope to complete the contracts for the remaining 6 contractors this week so they may also proceed and we can get caught up on the mowing in our parks. Indy Parks crews have been mowing some of those parks but unfortunately have been unable to get to all the properties. Additional challenges have been the rainy weather and the contract stipulations that our contractors cannot mow our parks on weekends. We anticipate having the majority of our parks mowed by week’s end."

In advance of the contractors still being finalized coming out to mow the parks, Indy Parks maintenance is doing the mowing. If you have a park that is getting particularly high, please let me know and I will check into having Indy Parks get to it as soon as they can.

Take care,
