This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to enter into contract with Contract Sweepers & Equipment Company for the Bridge Cleaning and Sealing 2019 service contract.

The estimated Notice to Proceed date is January 29, 2020. The project was let by the Office of Support Services through Vendor Services and Bid Express. Three bids were received on November 7, 2019.
