2016 Contract B - Project Suspension

December 15, 2016 

Cornell Avenue

Unfortunately, due to the recent snowfall and extended forecast of freezing temperatures, the remaining work of sod restoration will be suspended until weather permits in spring 2017.

Upon placement of the sod next year, the contractor will be responsible for watering, maintenance, and care of the new sod (as necessary) during the first month until the roots are established. After 30 days following sod placement, the city will inspect the sod for acceptance. If it is in a healthy condition, the sod will be accepted. You will receive another notice from the City informing you of acceptance or rejection of the new sod.

For those residents who already had sod placed this year, the city will inspect the sod for acceptance in the spring of 2017. If the sod is in a healthy condition, with the roots knitted to the soil, the sod will be accepted. You will receive another notice from the City informing you of acceptance or rejection of the new sod.
