Help Sessions to Recruit Mowing Contractors

Wednesday, January 03, 2024

TOLEDO, OH – The City of Toledo's Department of Public Service is actively seeking contractors to provide grass and vegetation-cutting services for city parks, right-of-ways, and neighborhood parcels through its 2024 Grass Mowing Program. The bidding process is in full swing and all bids must be submitted by the deadline Tuesday, January 16, at 1:30 p.m.

To assist interested contractors in navigating the bidding process, the Department of Public Service will be hosting a Mowing Bid Help Session on Monday, January 8, at the Main Library located at 325 N Michigan St.

The sessions will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and again from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Staff will be available to provide guidance on essential elements of the bidding process, including:

  • Contract Paperwork
  • Insurance Requirements
  • Tax Compliance
  • Uploading Documents into PlanetBids

The Department of Public Service emphasizes that staff will not assist with bid amounts, as the bidding process is competitive.

This session aims to address any questions or concerns contractors may have regarding the bidding process.

Contractors are encouraged to bring their laptops, as computer availability is limited. Staff from the Division of Purchases and Supplies will be on hand to assist with paperwork and ensure tax compliance.

Contractors can view the mowing bid packages on Planetbids. Contractors may also view the Mowing Bid Informational Webinar for more information about becoming a mowing contractor.
