Chamblee, GA, March 7, 2017 – The Post Reports – The City of Chamblee is soliciting sealed bids from qualified contractors to provide landscape maintenance services for all city parks, athletic fields and streetscapes. The term of the request for proposals (RFP) is 32 months with two, one-year options.
According to the City, the scope of the proposal includes mowing, turf care, edging and trimming, shrub care, straw and mulching. “Currently the City landscape maintenance is performed by full-time public works and parks workers, however with the addition of 25 acres of park land in 2016 and several new streetscapes, the City wants to move toward contracted maintenance.
By contracting the landscaping, the full-time staff will have more time to maintain play spaces and perform general maintenance items, such as picking up trash, painting and pressure washing,” said Jodie Gilfillan, Parks and Works Director.
Bidders may come to City Hall for a pre-proposal site visit, although it is not mandatory. Proposals are due on March 31, and contracts will be awarded on April 18, 2017.
