Joe handles just about any Grounds Maintenance problem that comes along. He can be seen operating a 5-gang mower on Mondays and Tuesdays, usuallly. The rest of the week, Joe takes care of such things as our fertilization program, irrigation programming and trouble-shooting, athletic field maintenance, or even putting up signs or fixing fences. Joe keeps all of our machinery in top running order too. He's quite a handy guy.
