LAUREL HILL — The Laurel Hill City Council has approved an annual mowing contract of $11, 324 with Transfield Services.



The council unanimously approved the contract during a special meeting on Monday. Councilman Johnny James made the motion with Councilwoman Betty Williamson’s second.



The council earlier this month deferred the contract vote after Councilman Clifton Hall stated that proposed costs — $7,354 annually — were inadequate and estimated costs needed to be further researched.



Transfield is responsible for mowing and trash pick-up on both sides of State Road 85 within city limits.
