In a move to reallocate Township employee resources, West Orange has contracted an outside vendor to handle grounds maintenance for the Township. Lawn care for all municipal properties will now be maintained by D'Onofrio Landscaping of South Orange.
Amongst other responsibilities, the company will handle cutting grass, maintaining bushes, weeding flowerbeds, and applying fertilizer treatments to approximately 120 acres of parks and grounds throughout the Township.
The Township contracted with the company in June 2012.
“Outsourcing some of this work enables the Department of Public Works to concentrate on other projects and provide timely and increased services for the tax payers,” said Mayor Robert Parisi. “We will continue to review outsourcing projects that will help the Township to deliver services to the community in the most efficient way possible.”
