The City of Mason City is soliciting quotations from contractors for Snow and or Ice removal on sidewalks. Written proposals are being accepted at the office of Development Services, Neighborhood Services Division, City Hall, 10 1st ST NW, 3rd Floor, Mason City, IA 50401 until 2:00pm, on Friday, September 18, 2020.
Snow/Ice Removal on Sidewalks
Snow and ice shall be removed from the sidewalks within a 48-hour period of the end of the snowfall or blowing snow according to Section 5-1G-1 of the City Code. Upon failure to remove the snow/ice from the sidewalks, the city will remove the snow/ice and charge the property owner accordingly.
A brief explanation of the process follows:
The contractor is notified of the snow/ice removal locations not before 48-hours after the end of the snowfall, ice or blowing snow event and is expected to clear the sidewalk with 48-hours of receiving the notice. The contractor will receive payment for only the sidewalks cleared and not for every notice received. If the sidewalk is cleared before the contractor arrives, the notice is to be marked “Already cleared” and no payment will be received. The City will be responsible for collection of all payments and the contractor will bill the City for services rendered. In an effort to ease collection of payments, the City will require the contractor to provide a before and after digital photograph of each sidewalk that has snow/ice removed. The City will provide the digital camera. See Special Instructions for further descriptions of snow/ice removal requirements.
The successful applicant will possess adequate equipment to remove snow and/or ice in an efficient manner. See Equipment Schedule.
The Contractor shall furnish the City with proof of liability insurance for a minimum of $1,000,000.00, property damage coverage of not less than $500,00.00; and automotive liability insurance for a minimum of $100,000.00 each person, $300,000.00 each occurrence and property damage liability of $25,000.00.
