I've been getting a bid ready for my city on a large mowing contract. The contract will cover 17 properties, totaling about 25 acres. One property alone is a neighborhood entry of about 1.5 miles, with sidewalks to be edged on both sides of street...totals about 10-11 acres of mowing. I've been toying with my bids, and have came up with nearly a $100 per acre bid. What I've been wondering is, is this too high for a city contract? I know that they are going to accept the lowest total bid, and I could really stand to get this contract. Also, I don't want to be the "lowballer" of the bid room, and look like an @$$. Any help or comments would be appreciated. Well, most, anyway...I know I'm new, but I don't need the comments I've had before, like: "if you need to ask this, this may be the wrong profession for you"...I'm here for help, not crap. Thanks guys!
