It is generally the desire of the City to purchase from CITY OF STURGIS vendors whenever practical. A City of Sturgis vendor is defined as “a Sturgis based business or vendor that has a physical and economic relationship to the City of Sturgis determined by the business having its plant or office located within the City of Sturgis boundaries and one which pays City of Sturgis real and/or personal property taxes.” Meeting this goal can be accomplished by insuring that local vendors who have goods or services available which are needed by the City are included in the competitive shopping process which will precede purchases. The award of a purchase contract for public bidding will normally be made to the low bidder meeting specifications. In cases where a local business, as defined in item 4, provides a responsive bid that is within five percent (5%) of the lowest responsive bid, the local business will be considered the lowest bidder if it agrees to reduce its bid to match the lowest bid.

The Owner reserves the right to accept any proposal, to reject any and all proposals and to waive any irregularities in proposals. If award is made, it will be to the bidder whose proposal is considered to be in the best interest of the Owner. All questions are to be directed to the Landscape Architect, VIRIDIS Design Group, 313 North Burdick Street, Kalamazoo, Michigan 49007, 269-978-5143,
