Windy Mowing Conditions

Ben Villalpando, a 25-year employee of the City of Austin Parks and Recreation department and Parks Grounds Crew Leader, uses a bandana to cover his face as he mows the large dusty expanse of Auditoirum Shores Wednesday morning. High wind gusts were the nature of the day as the heat index was expected to climb into the high 90’s. “We cover about 349 acres of park from Austin High School to Longhorn Dam and they are seven of us in charge of mowing the grounds. The bandana works great.” said Ben.
