Various locations within the City’s limit shall be maintained on a regularly scheduled basis throughout the year. Contractors must have the ability to maintain the areas depicted within the scope of work, exhibits herein without deviation of the set schedules, areas, services and work as defined.|
The City intends the award of this RFP to multiple vendors as a multi-year; three-year (3) plus two (2) one-year renewals – not to exceed five (5) years, continuing services agreement. Renewals shall be determined based upon contractor performance and what is considered to be in the best interest of the City.
The City of Cocoa has contracted mowing services previously for many of its’ local municipal buildings, roadways, easements, parks etc., with assistance through the Florida Department of Corrections to offset areas that could not be attended due to manpower constraints. Since COVID-19, the use of the Department of Corrections has since been cancelled leaving the City to expand the areas requiring contracted mowing services.
Local vendors are highly encouraged to consider this project. Local vendor preference of 5% is granted by the City.
