|The City's Code abatement program relies on private contractors to eliminate the accumulation of high grass and weeds and trash and debris on properties that require abatement. A minimum of five contractors are required in order to adequately meet the City's abatement program needs.
A solicitation was issued on December 23, 2019, with bids due on January 8, 2020. Due to the lack of minimum bids, the City wishes to rebid, in order to capture a larger pool of contractors to meet the needs of the program. Post bid opening, staff realized that some prospective contractors' were inadvertantly excluded during distribution of the solicitation packets, due to missing entries on the vendor list on file. Starting the process over allows for additional advertising and for a fair opportunity for all contractors who wish to be considered.
