Currently, the arbor and horticultural activities on medians, right-of-ways and public buildings are being managed solely by the Horticulture Contract Coordinator. In order to complete landscape projects, the coordinator has to rely on other departments. The success of landscape beautification projects relies mainly on the proper water availability right after installation and during the dry season. Currently, we depend on the availability of the City’s Irrigation staff to assist with watering needs, but they cannot always accommodate our needs because they have other commitments or are under-staffed. The Public Works Department is proposing to contract out the inspections, repairs, and improvements of the irrigation system on areas that are under their responsibility, and to hire one part time consultant to assist as a Landscape Inspector. Having a person assist with landscape inspections, will ensure that all areas are being maintained as required on the contract, deficiencies are addressed in a timely manner, vertical clearance is maintained in all roads, unsafe situations are identified and corrected, and landscape installations and tree maintenance is conducted following best management practices.
Consultant continues performing landscape inspection services twice per week. Working well.
