Requests for Proposals

Request for Proposals
The Borough of Elizabethtown is seeking request for proposals (RFPs) for the items listed below.

1. Architectural Services - to perform a feasibility study to determine whether two structures may be converted and used for various Borough functions and provide an initial statement of probable costs to rehabilitate the structures for the required functions. All responses to the RFP shall be submitted to the Elizabethtown Borough Office no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, February 23, 2018.

RFP Questions:

  • Is there an allocated budget for the feasibility study?  If so, it would be helpful to know the budget target so we can scale our services accordingly.

The Borough’s general practice is not to release budget estimates for projects that we have out for bid or for those projects that we are seeking an RFP.

  • Are there existing drawings available for either property?

The Borough has as built drawings for the Borough Office but we do not have any existing drawings for 56 N. Market Street or the Annex (620 S. Hanover Street).

  • An additional fee for civil engineering is requested under “Professional Services Cost.”  Could you say more about what civil engineering scope is anticipated for the feasibility study? 

This reference was included in case there would be a need during the feasibility study to evaluate the existing structures, evaluate if a new structure could be added, if there is a stormwater evaluation to be done, etc.  

2. Mowing - for general turf mowing and trimming services for the Borough’s designated public park lands, designated public building grounds, and designated roadsides/public rights-of-way.  All responses to the RFP shall be submitted to the Elizabethtown Borough Office no later than 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 8, 2018.
