Why is the City contracting out street sweeping?
Augusta currently has the manpower to operate one sweeper on a continuous basis. This is not enough resources to successfully meet the needs of Augusta. Simply put, there was more work than Augusta’s resources could achieve. Historically, we worked on problem areas and request for service. Augusta needed to move to a routine maintenance program in order to meet the requirements set in our stormwater permit. Therefore, we contracted for the routine maintenance. Augusta will continue to sweep problem areas, which need additional attention between routine sweeps.
