Thompson Lawn Service was the only company that bid, at $30,400 a year.

The Lawn service contract will begin July 1 and ends June 30, 2023.

Jane Harris and Hughes said there was no update on the Park Security Gate situation. At the last city council meeting on June 6, both Hughes and Harris said they were getting call backs when inquiring about a quote.

In other council news:

-Day discussed the upcoming Fourth of July fireworks, which will be held at 9 p.m. on Sunday, July 3.

-Bubba Holley of Parks and Recreation said that the cameras at the Valley Grande Walking Trail  and Baseball Fields are out again.

Holley and Labbe said the heavy rainstorm that hit Valley Grande may be a reason that the cameras went out.

The next Valley Grande City Council meeting will be held, Tuesday July 5 at 6 p.m. at Valley Grande City Hall. The meeting is moved to Tuesday because the Fourth of July holiday falls on Monday.
