Paonia puts parks contract out to bid

By Tamie Meck

At the Nov. 8 board meeting, Paonia town trustees approved a request for a proposal for a three-year park maintenance contract, to run Jan. 1, 2017 through Dec. 31, 2019. While in recent years the town has contracted with a private vendor and has extended the contract on an annual basis, trustees approved the three-year proposal as recommended by the public works committee and staff. Deadline for submitting proposals is 3 p.m. Monday, Nov. 28. A copy of the proposal is available at Town Hall or on the town website under "News & Announcements."
