Grounds Maintenance

Park maintenance services (mainly grass mowing) for two larger parks in Rialto were brought back in-house three years ago after being contracted out for several years. The purchase of a gang mower by the city made it financially feasible to take over the private contract. No new jobs were created as a result of the change in service delivery.

Case based on interview with Joe Guzzetta, City Administrator, June 28, 1999.
