UTILITY BOARD APPRISED OF EMERGENCY EXPENDITURES FOR HURRICANE DENNIS

- Awarded emergency change order #1 to the contract for utilities cable clearance tree trimming services with Asplundh Tree Expert Co., for an estimated total annual contract amount of $413,745. This contract will allow for two tree trimming crews and one leader to assist KEYS crews with tree trimming efforts.
