Bid Title: RFP - Merlin Landfill Wildfire Mitigation
Category: Construction - All Construction
Status: Cancelled
Bid Recipient: City of Grants Pass Administration - City Recorder

The City of Grants Pass Public Works Department is seeking proposals from qualified contractors to provide forestry clearing services for the property surrounding the closed Merlin Landfill. Previously, the Department has enlisted services to selectively clear land around the property perimeter to create a wildfire buffer. These efforts have been successful but we need to return to those previously cleared areas and perform “maintenance”. 

Project Overview:

The City of Grants Pass has set aside a fund for wildfire mitigation and is looking to return to the approximate 120 acres of previously thinned forest land. The intent is to remove any regrowth from stumps and brush with mechanized equipment, such as a Masticator.  We want to return as much of the 120 acres to proper condition as is financially feasible before the start of fire season in 2019. If the 120 acres are fully restored and there is time and funds remaining, the City may continue the wildfire mitigation on the rest of the property until time and or funds are depleted.  

The City will schedule a mandatory inspection tour for those contractors submitting proposals just prior to proposal submission deadline for the purpose of questions and clarification. Only contractors submitting proposals will be allowed on the inspection tour. The tour will be limited to two representatives from each contractor submitting a proposal. The City will reserve the right to inspect the ongoing clearing operations at any time without any prior notification.
