The Monroe County Board of County Commissioners approved requesting proposals from companies and vendors to provide a variety of emergency services in the event of a hurricane or other natural disaster. Monroe County Emergency Management and the Monroe County Attorney’s Office will work with companies on standby contracts.
“These contracts are only activated in the event of an emergency, like a hurricane,” said Assistant County Attorney Cynthia Hall. "This is the critical response needed from day one to day 120 to facilitate rapid and effective recovery after a storm,"
Emergency services needed include plumbing, roof repair, catering, janitorial, and mold remediation. By having the contracts in place, Monroe County hopes to expedite recovery and potential financial reimbursements. This process also will help ensure the contracts are procured under County, State, and Federal purchasing guidelines and requirements.
The complete list of needed services is noted on the County’s Request for Proposals (RFP). The RFP will be on Demand Star starting on April 20 at www.monroecounty-fl.gov/demandstar. Proposals are due May 29, 2019 at 3 p.m.
