City awards con­tract for weed man­age­ment

Fremantle Gazette - - NEWS -

THE City of Fre­man­tle will soon have new weed man­age­ment.

Green­steam Aus­tralia was awarded a two-year con­tract at a re­cent fi­nance, pol­icy and op­er­a­tions com­mit­tee meet­ing.

The scope of the work in­cludes weed con­trol of high-pri­or­ity roads, Fre­man­tle town cen­tre and play­ground sand six times a year and sub­ur­ban ar­eas twice a year.

A City re­port said Green­steam pro­vided the City with a high level of di­rect ex­pe­ri­ence.

“They also demon­strated a good un­der­stand­ing of the oc­cu­pa­tional health and safety re­quire­ments of the scope while de­liv­er­ing the ser­vices in an en­vi­ron­men­tally re­spon­si­ble way,” the re­port said.

Later in the year the coun­cil will dis­cuss chem­i­cal-free weed man­age­ment.
