Request for proposal for snow & ice removal

Addendum #1 Snow & Ice Removal Services

Please contact Dawn Reinhart at reinhartda@cityoflacrosse.org or 608-789-7360 for questions and concerns regarding the proposal process. 

Questions regarding the RFP are posted below:

Q: Can you explain the section beneath the site locations labeled "service requested" and " measurement/metric"? 

A: The purpose of this section is to have a better understanding on how a Contractor will charge for their services. Most sites are scattered throughout the City, the number of sites are constantly changing and the sites vary in size so the City wanted to allow the contractor flexibility on how they would like to charge for the services provided.  Please remember to take into account loading & unloading equipment and drive time to and from sites to maintain properties.

(ex) When the City first acquires a property, the sidewalks and/or alley may not have been maintained for sometime. Will you charge an extra fee to deice a property? If so, will this be an hourly rate, a per site visit rate, or a per sq. ft. rate?

(ex) When the snow starts to melt and freeze at night, will you charge a fee to check on the properties and provide deicing or ice control services? If so, will this be an hourly rate, a per site visit or per sq. ft.?
