BACKGROUND:

The existing perimeter fence at the Townsend Water Treatment Plant is currently in need of replacement to ensure proper security for the facility.  The contractor will install approximately 3,390 linear feet of chain link fencing eight feet high with one foot of barbed wire at the top around perimeter of the plant. The project includes the removal and disposal of the old fencing.  A request for bids was sent to vendors including all MWBE vendors supplied by the MWBE office.  The bid deadline was extended beyond 90 days so additional outreach to vendors could be performed.
