During the summer, USU Eastern facilities and maintenance facilitators replaced temporary employees with a private contractor to care for the campus greenery.
KM Spraying replaced temporary employees hired from SOS staffing to mow the larger lawns, fertilize and spray the campus grounds. Facilities maintenance staff members still mow the smaller portions of grass and care for smaller hamlets of greenery.
The replacement of SOS for KM is saving the college about $150 per week. Brad King, vice chancellor for administration and advancement, has high hopes for continued good work in the spring.
