Roswell OKs partnership, $50K for city beautification

The Roswell City Council has approved a continuing partnership with the Historic Roswell Beautification Project LLC and contributing $50,000 toward the organization’s expenses for planters, landscaping, tree replacement and other costs.

The council approved a memorandum of understanding with the group that recognizes the public-private partnership begun in 2017 “has been worthwhile,” and automatically renews July 1 of each year.

The city agreed to fund $50,000 of $92,702 in total fiscal 2019 spending by the Beautification Project. The city’s contribution covers spring and fall basket and planters ($23,160), spring and fall mulch and weed control ($4,000), biweekly weed control ($1,600), the Barrington Hall Wall Cleanup Project ($8,600) and the Elizabeth Way Tree Replacement Project ($12,640).

The approved budget also lists city employee man hours of eight hours per week at $20 an hour for 52 weeks, or $8,320.
