CURRENT INFORMATION:

It's spring and the beginning of mowing season!!   Please be patient with us during this time, as it takes an average of three weeks to make the mowing rotation.  We maintain the main thoroughfares (David McLeod, Evans St, Palmetto St, Irby St, and 2nd Loop Rd) of the City as well as streets in the neighborhood areas of North, Northwest, and East Florence. 

We have several on-going special projects that include: storm-water and beautification improvements in Lucas and Timrod Parks, streetscaping in the downtown district, gateway improvements, and Dorothy Hines Natural Trail landscaping. Please contact Adam Swindler, Public Works Manager at 843-665-3236 for more information regarding our current projects.
