Outdoor Services


Our Outdoor Services Program consists of 3 separate services, and clients may request one or all of them.

At different times of the year, when they are available, the Outdoor Services staff may also provide help with odd jobs such as installation of grab bars, clipping of bushes, garage organization, etc.

There is normally a considerable waitlist for these programs. Getting on the Commission on Aging's wait list is where you need to start. Return to Services page for Application and instructions

Lawn Mowing & Leaf Removal

Lawn mowing is provided once every 7 to 10 days and includes a single leaf removal in the fall. Due to weather conditions, fall leaf removal may not be finished until the spring.

Snow Removal

Snow removal is provided within 1-2 working days when snowfall of 4 inches or more is experienced. Snow removal includes spring clean-up of plow debris.

Outside Window Cleaning

Outside window cleaning is provided once each fall. If required, storm and screen windows can be removed/installed.

Sliding Fee Scale

Updated annual income is requested for these services.  Charges are determined using the sliding fee scale shown and are based on the client's income.

Vendor Program Outdoor Services
The Commission on Aging Outdoor Services Program is at full capacity.  To satisfy some of the demand for the program Commission on Aging contracts with local vendors to supply a limited number of openings.   When there are Vendor openings available, clients from the Outdoor Services wait list will be contacted.   They will be given the choice to remain on the wait list for services from COA or, to accept services from a Vendor.  

Clients are charged fees based on their income levels, AND the amount the Vendor has quoted to charge the client for the service.  Please see BOTH scales below.
