Mike, you are wrong there. I have worked for the city for years and they always pay in 21 days. Never had an issue.

Sean, the $8 bidder was a "minority owned" company called "American Dream"
Green Meadows was real cheap too, less than half what I bid.

Well maybe different by location but Richmond/Lenox was hard to collect from.
That's why I don't do city work no more. Maybe u just have great luck. Some don't.
Green meadows low balls everything, that's why they have so much work, plus the 75 Mexicans he has.lol

I saw some guys out spreading Pre Emergent today. Soil temp is still a little low but won't be long. I'm thinking we might get 3 cuts in in April instead of the 1 or 2 cuts in the last 2 years.
