Sound Off: This summer, crews from Sunflower Paving were tearing out and replacing curbing along Sixth Street. After they completed their work, tall weeds grew in the bare dirt left behind. Now, it appears that grass seed and straw have been thrown on top, but the weeds remain. Who is responsible for this, the city or Sunflower Paving?
Megan Gilliland, the city’s communications manager, provided this answer: The city’s policies require that contractors establish a good stand of grass as part of the project terms. Public works staff has been notified to check the area and follow up with the contractor.
