Contract Approved For Town Commons Beautification Project

SMITHFIELD – A bid has been awarded to complete the landscaping at the Smithfield Town Commons between the boat ramp and Boy Scout Hut.

Four bids were solicited from area landscapers but no one returned a bid on the project. GroundOne Landscaping Contractors submitted a quote after being requested to do so. Their bid was $22,083. The Parks and Recreation Department had budgeted $23,000 for the work. It was approved by the Smithfield Town Council.

This is one of the beautification projects of the Smithfield Appearance Commission. The Commission developed a plan to re-landscape the Town Commons after the existing landscaping had outlived its lifespan.

Quotes will be solicited separately for hardscape work, including the installation of boulders.
