Week in Review: Sept 28th - Oct 2nd

Jarrad Nickolite: Facility Services Manager

Hello from the West Metro.

I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful fall weather we are having.  This, is by far my favorite time of the year....jeans, a long sleeve shirt, football and chili.

Things have been going pretty good on this side of the city.  We are working through a lot of fall carpet cleaning along with scrubbing and re-coating hard surface floors.  It's a busy time of the year for these services.  Don't forget, snow is also right around the corner.  So, if you haven't received pricing for snow removal, please reach out to your FSM.

On Wednesday, our entire company did something really cool!  We volunteered with Habitat for Humanity and the Brush of Kindness folks, to paint an old Victorian home in St. Paul.  What a cool experience! I'm shocked by how much of the work we were able to complete as a group!  I hope we continue to do something like this each year.

My tournament fishing is done and over with for the year.  The rest of my fall time will be spent catching up on Lana's "honey-do" list around the house.

Week In Review: Sept 21st - 25th

Joel Willert: Facility Services Manager

I hope everyone is enjoying the last bit of warm weather before the snow starts to fly.

As the newest FSM at City Wide Maintenance of Minnesota, I have been meeting many new people and seeing a lot of different accounts during the transition into my territory.  I am looking forward to building great relationships and helping with everyone’s building maintenance needs.

I have had the opportunity to get carpet cleaning and window washing completed for multiple clients.  Now is a great time to get your facility prepped for the upcoming season, whether it be floor work, window washing, carpet care, lawn maintenance or looking for snow removal bids; we can help with it all.

On a more personal note, I've been trying to get out on the boat, fishing as much as possible before the lakes turn to ice.  I have also been working on multiple projects around the house, to be completed before winter arrives. Hopefully, I will find some time to spend in the woods and do a little hunting in the upcoming weeks as well.

Week In Review: Sept 14th - 18th

Alex Underwood: Facility Services Manager

Happy Fall Everyone,

I hope that summer has treated you well and that you were able to enjoy some time with family. I was able to make a few trips up to the Brainerd lakes to take the boat out and try to catch some fish.

Now that fall is upon us, I am enjoying some extra time on the weekends, as all the weddings are over. I had a total of 6 weddings this spring and summer, so I am excited to catch up on some projects around the house. I am also looking forward to hunting season starting, which will quickly begin to consume my weekends once again.

At City Wide, we are also getting very busy, prepping all our facilities for fall and winter. Weather it be getting the windows cleaned up or getting lawn and landscape ready for winter, there are plenty of services we can assist with. We have also been actively talking with customers about their snow removal needs for this winter and lawn care needs for next spring and summer. 

My biggest project lately, was helping one of my facilities get prepared for a large customer and supplier show coming up. They are expecting to have 8,000 guests pass through their doors over a 4 day period, so I have been staffing extra day time staff to help monitor and keep the facility looking great.  Our goal is to help them put their best foot forward with their new customers. 

I hope everyone enjoys the fall colors, Halloween, and the coming snow.
