Bid Number: PW-2019-100
Bid Title: Forestry Services
Category: Parks and Recreation
Status: Awarded
Bid Recipient: Gamma

Description:
Sealed bids for 2019 Forestry Services will be received by the City of Des Peres, City Clerk's Office, until 2:00 P.M., on Wednesday, March 27, 2019;  The bids will then be publicly opened and read aloud in Council Chambers, City Hall, 12325 Manchester Rd, Des Peres MO 63131.  Two copies of the bid must be submitted in a sealed envelope with the project name, date, and time of opening clearly written on the envelope.

The Scope of Work includes the removal and planting of street trees and treatment for EAB, but also may include tree pruning and stump removal.  Bid prices are requested for various tasks in order to provide flexiblity.  

Public Works has typically provided these services using its own staff, but the tree inventory completed last year has shown the need for outside resources to assist with the removal of trees in poor and fair condition.  While the primary intent of this bid is to award a contract for services in 2019, we have also requested pricing for 2020.  Should services be satisfactory in 2019, the 2020 pricing could be utilized to extend the contract for a second year.

It is anticipated that a contract would be taken to the Board of Aldermen for approval at their April 8th meeting, and notice to proceed would be issued shortly thereafter.

Bid packages will be available Monday, March 4, 2019 from the Des Peres City Clerk, 12325 Manchester Rd, Des Peres MO 63131; or they can be downloaded at the link below

A bid security in the amount of ten percent (10%) of the bid amount must accompany each bid in accordance with the Instructions to Bidders.

The City reserves the right to accept or reject any bid and to waive any irregularities in the best interest of the City.
