BOUNTIFUL -- The Bountiful City Light & Power Company has renewed a tree-trimming contract with a local tree removal company.
The city council recently voted 5-0 to extend the contract of Asplundh Tree Experts for the coming fiscal year at a rate of $117.84 an hour per crew for the period from July 1 to June 30, 2013 to do tree trimming work for the BCL&PC. The contract sets a contract limit of $520,000 for the year. The amount is the same as an existing contract with the company.
The extended contract was approved by the city's power commission, before being brought before the council for final approval. Any utility expense more than $10,000 requires city council approval.
