Roadway landscaping has been a target Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Dust
Each crew is responsible for maintaining 23 miles of medians in one of Cobb's four commission districts.
The winning crew Nike Air Max 90 2014 Mens Blue for the entire season will get a steak dinner, cooked personally by Lee and County Manager David Hankerson, while the other crews will get hot dogs and hamburgers.
"We were kicking around ideas, and we decided that making it a competition would make it fun and give some incentive," he said.
Each crew has three crew members to start the year, with a crew chief, equipment operator and a Cobb County Detention Center inmate. The county plans to hire a total of 14 seasonal workers to help out during times of heavy mowing.
Cobb Commission Chairman Tim Lee said the idea for the contest came after a conversation he had with transportation director Faye DiMassimo.
The county has implemented a beautification project for the 2012 landscaping season, which started Monday and continues through Oct. 1. Bill Shelton, Cobb DOT road maintenance division manager, said monthly prizes, such as gift cards, will be awarded for the crew that does the best overall in seven categories: grass, litter, curb and gutter, mulching, weeds in concrete, production and overall appearance.
Lee said the crews won't be disappointed by their grilling Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Se Olive
about some of the oversight committee's road landscaping recommendations, Lee said the county is looking at ways to use more xeriscaping, the practice of gardening in ways that require less irrigation than traditional landscaping.

MARIETTA Officials are hoping that a little extra incentive will help the Cobb County Department of Transportation's four road maintenance crews rebound from a tough 2011.
The county used to spend $600,000 in annual right of way beautification contracts, but decided to use its own crews because of budget cuts. Shelton said residents noticed the difference last year.
for budget cuts. Among the recommendations in the recent Citizen Oversight Committee report was to transfer road landscape maintenance to the county's parks department.
Crews hope grass grows longer on competitors' side
"The grass we couldn't keep up with it," he said. "We weren't doing a lot of grass cutting because it's an aesthetic issue, and we were concerned about safety issues."
Because of rules prohibiting the transportation department from giving inmates food, Shelton said they are not eligible for the prizes.
"The easiest thing to do is to put concrete in, but you don't want to do that," he said. "So you look at the lowest maintenance option that can maintain an attractive appearance."
