HPU’s grounds crew assists City of Brownwood with garden bed project

BROWNWOOD – March 20, 2019 – Howard Payne University’s grounds crew recently helped the City of Brownwood and Keep Brownwood Beautiful with local efforts to clear garden beds at the traffic T near Highway 84 and Highway 377.

The project, which was overseen by Jon Ochoa, Brownwood’s city supervisor, involved removing some of the aging planting materials from the garden area.

“With the older plants gone, the city and Keep Brownwood Beautiful can go back in with new plants,” said Terry Pritchett, HPU’s assistant vice president for facilities and planning. “Our portion was to help them remove much of the old plants – grasses and roses mainly.”

Workers from the City of Brownwood were present for the project and HPU’s grounds crew worked to support their efforts.

“It is always a pleasure helping our City of Brownwood friends as they continuously improve their bedding areas,” said Pritchett. “We have developed a great relationship together and look forward to future collaborations.”
