Sealed bids shall be submitted to the City of Utica Clerk’s Office using this form only by November 9, 2018, 4:00 p.m.  Bids will be opened and read on Saturday, November 10, 2019 at 9 a.m.
Bids shall represent an all-inclusive cost, meeting the requirements described within the scope of work(s).
Successful bidder shall submit and maintain proof of liability insurance with limits not less than $1 million per occurrence and automobile liability insurance with limits not less than $1 million per occurrence and provide evidence of worker’s compensation insurance coverage, also.

Successful bidder shall add and maintain the City of Utica and the City of Utica Downtown Development Authority as additional insureds.
The City of Utica DDA reserves the right to reject any and/or all bids.
 

Area 1, also referred to as “Downtown”
The successful bidder shall remove the snow from the public sidewalks commencing after 1 inch of accumulated snowfall and follow up with an application of salt or ice melter(s) as needed to maintain a safe, walkable surface.  Additional snow clearing or application(s) of salt may be required and is the responsibility of the successful bidder to maintain.  Examples of this include but are not limited to blowing and drifting snow, ice accumulation due to storms or snow melt and snow deposited by road clearing operations.
It is expected that the snow be cleared from the entire sidewalk, and more specifically, where the sidewalk adjoins a building or structure.
Depositing snow around the light poles and trees is acceptable, but at no time shall snow be put in the street.
The successful bidder shall make every effort to have the sidewalks clear of snow and ice before 9 a.m. of each day.
Please see Exhibit A to reference the boundaries referred to as Area 1.

The scope of work will be specific by areas as follows: 
 
Area 2
The successful bidder shall remove the snow from the public sidewalks, and where no sidewalk exists, provide a walkable path within the public right of way, commencing after 1 inch of accumulated snowfall.  Additional snow clearing may be required and is the responsibility of the successful bidder to maintain a clear, walkable surface.  Examples of this include but are not limited to blowing and drifting snow, blockages due to other sources and snow deposited by road clearing operations.
It is expected that the snow be cleared and a safe, walkable path be maintained at all times.  The successful bidder shall make every effort to have the sidewalks and walkable path(s) cleared by 9 a.m. of each day.
Area 2 does not require applications of salt or ice melters.  However, the successful bidder shall be able to provide this service within a 24-hour notice at an extra cost agreed upon and consistent with industry standards.
Please see Exhibit B to reference the boundaries referred to as Area 2.

 
Bidders shall provide an hourly rate for the removal of accumulated snow in Area 1 (Downtown) that will be loaded, transported and deposited on DDA property.  Selected property is located not more than 1 mile from Area 1.
Minimum equipment shall be two (2) 5 to 7 yard dump trucks and a minimum of a 3 yard capacity loader.
