Bid Title: Request for Proposals: Flower Basket Watering
Category: Other Professional Services & Non Design Consultants
Status: Cancelled

The City of Grants Pass is looking for a contractor to water flower baskets in the Downtown area.

We have about 135 flower baskets and a few planters that need to be watered 5 - 7 mornings per week during the warmest part of the year. The flowers start off being watered 2 to 3 days per week, and as it warms up they need water up to 7 days per week. For the past several years, City Staff have watered the flowers and planters 2 or 3 days per week and a contractor has watered them the other 3 to 5 days.  Last year the contractor grossed about $7,000 for the season.  Typically, it takes 4 – 5 hours per day to water all of the locations. 

We are open to a creative option that may include the City helping set up the contractor’s vehicle with electric pumps and a water tank.

We have a bulk water fill up area nearby and pay for all water.  If you have a reliable truck that can handle a payload of 2,000 – 2,500 pounds, are personally reliable, have a desire to work for yourself, appreciate the beauty that the flowers bring to our community, want to be a part of that, have or can get proper vehicle licensing and insurance, and think you or your company might like to take on the challenge and make the money, please call Michael Byrne, Property Management Coordinator for the City of Grants Pass for more information at (541) 450.6157.
