On February 3, IBEW 1245 members employed in the City of Redding Parks Department removed trees to help expedite the Public Works Department’s street widening and bike lane project on Quartz Hill. Their assistance prevented the City from contracting out the work to an outside contractor.
Local 1245 members Travis McNeill (Lead Arborist), Chris McCarty and Chris Loucks working on cutting the trees; Marty Gentles operated the Bobcat; and Jim Cole and Chris Fleming performed traffic control.
