Snowmass looking for better maintenance of landscaping

SNOWMASS VILLAGE – The Snowmass Village Town Council on Tuesday directed staff to put more resources into landscaping, a change in direction from its discussions last fall.

There have been significant cuts in parks and trails staff in the past few years, and last year, a contract service maintained gardens throughout town. This year, the plan was to contract out the maintenance of Town Park and town gardens, and staff members Tuesday night were looking for the officials to give direction on what landscaping areas they would like to see enhanced.

But that sparked a discussion about whether a contract service was enough to maintain the town’s resources. In the end, the officials directed staff to come back with a series of options for reallocating funds so that more employee hours could be spent on the maintenance.
