20115. For purposes of Section 20114, "maintenance" means routine,
recurring, and usual work for the preservation, protection, and
keeping of any publicly owned or publicly operated facility for its
intended purposes in a safe and continually usable condition for
which it was designed, improved, constructed, altered, or repaired.
"Facility" means any plant, building, structure, ground facility,
utility system, or real property.
This definition of "maintenance" expressly includes, but is not
limited to: carpentry, electrical, plumbing, glazing, and other
craftwork designed consistent with the definition set forth above to
preserve the facility in a safe, efficient, and continually usable
condition for which it was intended, including repairs, cleaning, and
other operations on machinery and other equipment permanently
attached to the building or realty as fixtures.
This definition does not include, among other types of work,
janitorial or custodial services and protection of the sort provided
by guards or other security forces.
It is the intent of the Legislature that this definition does not
include painting, repainting, or decorating other than touchup, but
instead it is the intent of the Legislature that such activities be
controlled directly by the provisions of Section 20114.
