    Hello all. I am new to this forum and have a rather unusual question. Do any of you put in a clause for a markup for snow removal on holidays?

    I am taking over a contract of a friend who sold his business and this particular Condo assoc. previously paid him a 20% premium for snow removal on major holidays.

    Any input on if I should keep it or lose the clause?

    Yep. I agree par for the course. And if there not open, don't plow them till the next day.

    It is a Condo complex, next day is not an option. My thought was if they paid it for him, what the heck mis'well keep it in. But it's always good to get feedback from others.

    If you had in-laws like I do you would be willing to work for less on holidays.

    What about Martin Luther King day? President's Day?

    There's got to be more.

    I'd keep it if they were paying it.

    We should all get together and pick out a B day present for Grandview. Any ideas?
