GMP awards tree-trimming contract to out-of-state company
Green Mountain Power Corp. has awarded a statewide tree trimming contract to Asplundh, a Pennsylvania-based company. The three-year contract, which accounts for half of GMP’s tree-related work, could mean a loss of work for local tree companies that worked for the former Central Vermont Public Service Corp.
GMP spokeswoman Dorothy Schnure said Thursday the contract with Asplundh will save ratepayers $500,000 a year. She also said companies that lost out on the tree-trimming bid will still be able to bid on the remaining work, including transmission trimming, tree removal and capital construction work.
Schnure said Asplundh plans on hiring local tree trimmers.MORE IN This Just InDUXBURY — Crossett Brook Middle School in Duxbury is poised to get Vermont’s largest... Full StoryState police say the Exit 8 Southbound ramp on I-89 is closed due to a disabled tractor trailer;... Full Story
