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.
