Facilities & Grounds

Dan Vivian, Facilities Manager
616.847.3493

The Facilities and Grounds Manager is responsible for the Cemetery, Custodial, Maintenance, and Parks and Grounds staff. The manager is also gaining experience and training to address tree matters in the City, which can take up to one-third of the week during busy seasons. The manager inspects and determines when trees need to be pruned or removed by the Parks staff, and decides whose job it is to then prune and/or remove the trees. When deemed necessary, a licensed arborist is retained to assist in the evaluations. A goal is for this service area to take over the City’s annual tree planting program and the program that allows property owners to purchase trees at a very affordable rate.
