RFP for Lawn-care, Landscaping, Property Maintenance, & Debris-Removal Services

The Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority of St. Louis County (the “LCRA”) is a political subdivision organized pursuant to Chapter 99 of the Missouri Revised Statutes for the purposes, among others, of rehabilitating, redeveloping, and renewing real property for residential, commercial, or mixed use for the economic benefit and social welfare of St. Louis County. The St. Louis Economic Development Partnership provides staff for the LCRA.

Consistent with its organizational purposes, the LCRA owns certain real property parcels in St. Louis County, Missouri, which require certain lawn-care, landscaping, property-maintenance, and debris-removal services (the “Services”). The LCRA issues this Request for Proposals (the “RFP”) from qualified contractors to provide the Services for a one-year period with two successive options for the LCRA, at its sole discretion, to renew for terms of one year each. The contract issued pursuant to this RFP may include a period of up to three (3) years.

Scope of Services
The LCRA seeks lawn-care, landscaping, property-maintenance, and debris-removal services for multiple, scattered parcels located in St. Louis County, Missouri. The current listing of parcels for which Services are requested is set forth below. Generally, the Services for each parcel set forth below shall include: (1) cutting grass; (2) controlling weeds on any paved areas, as applicable; (3) disposing of litter; (4) inspecting for dumping and reporting the same to LCRA staff; and (5) removing dumped debris, as requested.

Proponents are responsible for familiarizing themselves with the parcels listed below and their current conditions, including the scope and quantity of existing dumped debris at the properties. It should be noted that some of these parcels periodically experience dumping. It is the expectation that the selected firm(s) will inspect for dumping during the normal course of maintaining the properties and notify the LCRA of any issues. To address sporadic debris removal, proposals should include disposal cost on a per load basis. The Services identified below shall be provided as directed by staff of the LCRA.
