Overgrown playing fields? Weeds encroaching on sidewalks? Dangerous tree's hanging over the road?
In Article 10 this year the town hopes to take the first step to rectify these issues by increasing personnel. Currently, there is not enough staff in place to maintain parks through the town at a high quality for the residents to enjoy. Specifically, it involves hiring two laborers for the last 3 months of the year.
The next step would be to split these two departments and begin to phase in maintenance of all Town and School fields.
The ultimate goal is to provide residents with high quality consistent maintenance to our fields so our kids can play safely and competitively.
This will also allow all of the great volunteers in Billerica Youth Organizations to focus their efforts on coaching and not be burdened with field maintenance.
