Welp, I had the opportunity to bid on a government maintenance contract, it was strictly lawn mowing, grass trimming, edging and blowing.. After looking at this 50+ page document, I find that this is ridiculous.. They want a 15% performance bond if you get accepted for the contract, ie) if you quote 100,000k you must put down 15% before you begin the work. 2. If they find any damage to the turf areas, ANY you will be held liable and the city will deduct from you invoice when they send out their city crew to repair it. 3. I would of gotten some of the govt bids since there is only 3 companies bidding on it, me being one of them.. For some of you that are in my area, it's the CITY OF LANGLEY/TOWNSHIP OF LANGLEY.. So I said screw IT!, since it will go with the lowest bidder anyways..
