Request for Proposal for Mowing/Weed Removal Services

The City of Cambridge is soliciting proposals for mowing services for properties in violation of the City Code.  These services will be rendered if a property owner neglects their yard and allows grass or weeds to grow in excess of twelve inches.  Services may be needed for residential lots as well as large undeveloped subdivisions. 

The City will first notify the owner in writing of the violation.  If the violation is not corrected by the due date specified in the letter, the city will pay a contractor to abate the violation.  The contractor should remove the violation within 72 hours of notice from the City.  Charges incurred by the city for mowing services are then assessed to the property for collection with taxes.

Proposals should include name of company with a contact person, address, phone number, and e-mail address.  A cost per hour must be provided along with a detailed company profile including the equipment available and the number of personnel available for the work. The contractor must provide the City with a certificate of insurance for liability insurance in the amount of the $500,000 for all claims and name the City as an additional insured.

Proposals must be submitted no later than 4:30 p.m. on April 25, 2014 and submitted to:
