Body
PREAMBLE

As part of the adopted 2022 Operating Budget, funding for maintenance of planting beds in medians was reduced from $165,000 to $86,422. The City currently has 208 median planting beds that are under private contract to maintain. To comply with the adopted operational budget approximately 110 of these medians are required to be removed from contracted maintenance going forward.
In an effort to minimize shifted costs to Parks in expanding their mowing efforts, Engineering has worked with Parks so that of the 110 median plantings that are being removed and replace as follows:
· 52 planting beds are being returned to turf, however in an effort to minimize additional work for Parks staff these locations are primarily planting beds that are currently surrounded by turf that requires some mowing currently (portions of Packers/Northport). Parks will expand their mowing in 2023 to include these planting locations.
· 37 planting beds are being converted to colored stamped concrete. These locations are primarily narrow medians in high traffic areas or tapered ends of medians typically by a turn lane/ intersection (for example East Washington Ave and adjacent to the Monona Terrace underpass).
· The remainder will be in medians that are primarily planted now with small amounts of turf surrounding the planting beds. These will constitute new work for Parks and a request for additional funding will be included in the 2023 operating budget.
