For the fourth year in a row, Earth First Landscape will provide parks maintenance for the Seabourne Creek Regional Sports Complex grounds.
At the last regular Rosenberg City Council meeting, council members awarded a contract for parks maintenance service to low bidder Earth First Landscape in the amount of $72,761.
According to Parks and Recreation Director Darren McCarthy, this is the second time and fourth consecutive year that the city has worked with the landscaping company.
“It’s for the baseball fields and irrigation at the new sports complex,” McCarthy explained to council.
“Those fields are mowed twice a week with a specialized mower. They also do a lot with the irrigation, repair and maintenance. (With) the irrigation, you have to keep a really good eye on it to make sure you reuse the water.”
Council member Kevin Raines commended the parks department for taking care of the sports complex.
“Thank you to the city for putting this kind of stock into our Little League fields, that’s a lot of money for maintenance on those fields,” Raines said.
“I know as a Little League parent, we did a lot of this ourselves after the games and it was pretty grueling and tiresome.
“And for the city to step up and take care of the fields, that’s a pretty awesome thing. Thank you, Darren, for making sure that operation runs smoothly.”
Raines then made a motion to award the parks maintenance contract to Earth First Landscape. The motion was seconded by council member Tim Anders and passed unanimously.
Seabourne Creek Nature Park is located at 3831 SH 36.
