    We are currently looking to bid 39 Acres of municipal cemetaries over 14 different locations. Never bid on anything like this before. Any ideas?

    1oo to 120 / acre just for basic maintenance if there are alot of open runs, maybe a little less if alot of trimming and such then lean toward the higher end

    LOL, I average less than 2 posts a day since I registered....try again.

    Yes, because I clicked "New Posts" and it was there. Then I went back to read what the first post asked and saw it was from 2008.

    Pretty sure the OP doesn't need any help with this bid anymore.

    But hey, feel free to get your panties in a bunch because I pointed out the age of the thread.

    funny that people complain that some don't use the search feature enough and then when they bring up an old thread like this, some still want to complain about it...either way, you don't need to respond to the thread you can choose to move along

    thanks and carry on :clapping:
