Escambia County Contracting With Town Of Century For Library Lawn Maintenance, Christmas Lights

December 5, 2023

Escambia County is set to enter into an interlocal agreement with the Town of Century for lawn maintenance at the Century Branch Library.

The Century Branch Library and the Century Town Hall share a common lawn. Century employees will provide lawn maintenance at the library at a cost of $300 per month. In addition, the town will install Christmas lights on the library to match those at the town hall at a cost not to exceed $150.

Century is required to maintain liability insurance during the one year contract. The town council has already approved the agreement, and the Board of County Commissioners will consider it on December 7. file photo, click to enlarge.

    @ tax payer, oversight, and SM

    The article states that Century WILL BE PAID to maintain the County library lawn and lights. What better way is there for the new lawnmowers to make some money for the town? Century will be putting lights on the town hall, why not get paid to put some on the library too?

    Finally, an actual good idea…

    Maybe that could be part of the mayors job.

    Not sure why they need to hire more to cut the grass. Didn’t they just get Nice New Mowers when Mayor Hawkins was in office? Just saying…. ROADS NEED WORK before Christmas lights!!!!!!!!!!!

    Century can’t even cut the grass; a pitiful excuse of government.
