Vote needed on Courthouse Lawn Repairs
From Decatur Patch
All those festivals on the Decatur Court Square have taken a toll.
The lawn near the community bandstand has become so worn down over the years that the City of Decatur wants to budget $275,000 to renovate the area. The city commission will vote Monday night on the project.
Work would start just after July 4 and take about two months, said a memo from Deputy City Manager Hugh Saxon.
Saxon said the work would include "removal of compacted soil around the bandstand, installation of a waterproof liner, drainage system, structural soil mix, irrigation system and laying a new Bermuda turf lawn. Several declining trees will be removed and replaced with trees, shrubs and other landscape improvements."
If the commission approves, a $224,000 contract will go to Ed Castro Landscaping Inc. of Roswell. That company was the low bidder.
