Pittsburgh seeking contractors to mow lawns for eligible residents

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review - 1/8/2020

Jan. 8--Pittsburgh on Wednesday began accepting bids from landscape contractors for its City Cuts free grass cutting service available to seniors, disabled residents and veterans.

Interested contractors must register through Beacon, the city's online procurement platform. Feb. 4 is the deadline for submitting proposals.

Since its inception in 2018, City Cuts has provided free lawn care services to more than 2,000 seniors, veterans and low-income people with disabilities. It is available exclusively to city residents on a first-come, first-served basis.

Council President Theresa Kail-Smith sponsored legislation that created the program. She said the goal was to improve the look of city neighborhoods while offering a helping hand to people on fixed budgets.

Pittsburgh in coming months will open an application process for receiving the service. Residents can sign up online to be notified when applications are being accepted.
