The Johns Creek City Council has awarded two contracts totaling $940,000 for road-related maintenance.
Optech, a municipal services provider, will handle mowing, landscaping, and grass and vegetation treatment of street medians under a $585,000 contract. It will apply herbicides as necessary, aerate outside the right-of-way at least once a year, ensure grass remains at least 90 percent weed-free, and mulch landscape beds, Public Works Director Lynette Baker said in an agenda report to the council.
The firm also will be responsible for roadway, sign and storm drain maintenance under a $355,000 contract, conducting proactive inspections of storm drains and repairing potholes within two business days of a report unless on a Georgia Department of Transportation state route, Baker said.
The initial contract runs through the end of the 2019 fiscal year and has two one-year extensions.
