Staff recommends approval of the second amendment with Boone Improvements, Inc. to extend the existing contract thru September 30, 2012.
The City originally contracted with Boone Improvements, Inc. in August 2007 for a 3 year period. Boone Improvements, Inc. provides large area mowing services for Leesburg International Airport. This second amendment will extend the contract period until September 30, 2012. The original agreement provides for the City to renew in writing additional one (1) year periods at the City’s option. The City wishes to exercise that option with this second amendment.
The contractor mows the primary area no more than thirteen (13) times each year and the secondary area no more than thirteen (13) times each year according to the schedule provide here. Mowing may be adjusted to fewer cuttings depending on how fast or slowly the grass grows.

December - No cuts
January - No cuts
February - One cut

Mowing Area Price per Complete Cut

The contractor has been paid the listed amounts for the past 3 fiscal years. The difference in amounts for the fiscal years is due to fewer cuts as needed based on the growth rate of the grass.
Extension of this contract will allow for uninterrupted mowing services. The City has received excellent service and dependability from Boone International, Inc. and would like to continue its relationship with this vendor.
