Just got the results back on a municipal tender. I'm actually still in shock. Take a guess what the contract was awarded for ??? keep in mind materials and labour for the trees and gardens is included. Hint: It's a brand new company. I'll post what the winning bid was later. I'm still shaking my head. The bid consisted of the following properties 16 Properties Including 9 Cemetaries Total area 6.25 Acres 3 Parks with a lot of trees Total Area 8.8 Acres. 3 Works Dept yards 2.4 acres 1 Rec Center w/ soccer fields - 2.5 acres About 20 acres total. 12 cuts per year 3 year contract. And this is for comprehensive property maintenance including spring and fall cleanups and tree protection not just grass cutting. Here is the scope of work. the total tree count was 862. And there was a substantial performance bond. Here's the scope of work.
