More money allocated to beautify Stockbridge roadways

The Stockbridge City Council voted at its July 27 meeting to approve a change in one of the city’s maintenance contracts for landscaping on public roads. A state contract was approved in 2019 to spend $150,000 per year for “preventive and corrective maintenance services for the beautification of the city gateways,” according to city staff. That contract has been renewed at a higher cost of $210,000 so that additional roadways can be included.

Those roadways are Campground Road, Jodeco Road and the Bridges at Jodeco development area. In other business, the council voted to approve a short list of trucks that was declared surplus. Information: cityofstockbridge.com.
