How does the City determine which contractor to use for cost-shared sidewalk repairs?

The City competitively bids for sidewalk repair services. We select the lowest-cost contractor that has a proven record of success on these types of projects. Bid prices offered by contractors in the competitive bid process are generally lower in cost for the City organization than would be offered to an individual homeowner bidding for sidewalk repair. This is because getting the contract provides them with hundreds of sidewalk jobs to complete annually.
