NN Landscaping, Inc. will resume its snow removal duties

During the last meeting before the holidays began, members of the Westmoreland County Board of Supervisors delivered a unanimous vote to renew Northern Neck Landscaping’s snow removal contract.
Frank Swann, Jr. is President of Northern Neck Landscaping and Swann submitted the only proposal in response to the local government’s contractor solicitation. No member of the Westmoreland County Board could recall when another contractor had performed those duties.
The Board’s three veteran members praised the reliability and quality of Northern Neck Landscaping’s previous performance.
“This contractor has done it for Westmoreland County many times and the figures in the proposal are right in line with what the costs have been in the past,” District 4 Supervisor Woody Hynson told the other members of the Board.
“I see nothing wrong with the bid. I think we’d better accept it and move on,” Hynson said seconds before he introduced a formal motion to accept the contractor’s snow removal bid.
Northern Neck Landscaping will be paid for each snow or sleet event that requires the contractor’s services. The proposal included a $425.00 preparation charge.
“The prep cost,” Swann explained in a December 3 correspondence addressed to the five Westmoreland Supervisors, “is due to time it takes for men to hook up the snow removal equipment and inspect the trucks.
“[The preparation fee] also covers cost of coming out before work is to commence and assessing if conditions warrant snow removal.”
The proposal includes reimbursement for the contractor’s purchase of multiple 50-pound bags of de-icing materials. Ten county properties were included in the bid.
The A. T. Johnson Human Services building parking area will be cleared at a cost of $250 for each of the season’s snow removal occurrences. The George D. English Building’s parking area will likewise cost $250 to clear each time it snows.
The Sheriff’s Office parking area’s clearing will cost $125 and it will cost $120 to clear the Hague library road and parking area. The Animal Shelter road and parking area will be cleared for a $110 charge.
The Carmel Church convenience site and trash disposal area will cost $95 to clear. The Montross library’s parking area will be cleared for $85. The old court house and museum parking area will be cleared for $75 and the Montross-Westmoreland wastewater treatment plant’s access road and parking area will be cleared at a cost of $75.
“Everything appears to be in order,” District 23 Supervisor Lynn Brownley noted. “We can award the contract and be ready for the snow.”
Board of Supervisors Chairman Darryl Fisher advised citizens attending the Board’s December meeting that in the event that there is no frozen winter precipitation, Northern Neck Landscaping will receive no payments from the local government.
“And that probably won’t happen,” a private citizen remarked. “It wouldn’t be winter if it didn’t snow.”
