Wet weather impacts Council’s mowing and maintenance schedules
Blue Mountains City Council’s officers have been working tirelessly to mow lawns and sportsgrounds and tend to gardens on the random days that the sun returns and the ground starts to dry, but the current mowing schedules for Council’s 105 parks and 95 sports areas are delayed due to high levels of rainfall and the boggy conditions.
Blue Mountains Mayor, Mark Greenhill, asked for patience as crews work hard to catch up on work in these areas in a safe manner.
“Council crews work hard to keep our public areasfunctional and aesthetically pleasing, however recent conditions have led to a burst in grass growth and there is currently a backlog,” Cr Greenhill said.
“Even when we get a sunny day, it takes time for these areas to dry out enough, so that mowing can occur.”
Blue Mountains Council Chief Executive Officer, Dr Rosemary Dillon, said: “Attempting to mow parks, ovals or sportsgrounds in these wet conditions can put staff at risk of injury, or cause damage to grounds – which we do not want.
“We also do not want members of the public to be injured by taking matters into their own hands.
“We appreciate the community’s patience as Council crews work to get on top of high growth areas as quickly as possible.”
