New maintenance contract for Bayside

Bayside’s streets and beaches will continue to sparkle after the signing of a new open space and infrastructure maintenance services contract with Citywide.

The new arrangement brings together all open space and infrastructure maintenance services under a single contract aimed at enhancing service delivery and continues Council’s relationship with Citywide.

Citywide will provide open space and infrastructure maintenance services including: beach cleaning, street sweeping, road and footpath maintenance, drainage management, tree maintenance services, sports ground maintenance and graffiti management.

Bayside Mayor, Cr Clarke Martin said that under the new maintenance contract Bayside residents and businesses can expect a well maintained and clean municipality.

“We have an 18-year relationship with Citywide and know that Bayside is in safe hands,” he said.

“This long-term partnership means the Citywide team will bring local knowledge to all the services it will provide under the contract.

“The community will also benefit from additional services under the new seven-year contract including a greater connection between workers on the ground and the community.”

Citywide will support Bayside City Council to reduce our environmental impact and safeguard the cleanliness of our streets whilst being responsive to community needs.

Citywide CEO, Chris Campbell said the bundled services contract will ensure the Bayside community continues to receive the excellent level and quality of service it has come to expect, as well as ongoing productivity benefits.

“Our operations team take great pride in delivering outstanding services for all our host communities, shaping the community, none more so than in Bayside,” Chris said.

“The values we share – being accountable and principled in what we do, promoting innovation and upholding the safety and well-being of Council, its community and the environment in which we work – underpin the enduring, trusting relationship we have built with Bayside.

“We believe communities thrive and prosper in healthy, safe, sustainable and vibrant cities. It’s a vision we know we share with the Bayside community and a vision that we will continue to deliver for their benefit.”

The services provided by Citywide will support Bayside’s efforts to keep our open spaces and streets in prime condition.
