    My Village is currently bidding out their snow removal contract. The last contract bid received only 2 replies. Long story short the contract was rewritten and is now out for bid again. Where is the best place to post this bid so as to attract more contractors? The Village is located in Rockland County New York.

    I would suggest going into the Networking forum as I would assume you would be looking for local contractors to bid on the property

    Public notice in your local paper. I don't think you can send letters out to contractors,might look like favoring select contractors.

    Yes, we did that this time and last time too. We also published in some industry news paper or magazine but I don't think it is reaching people. I looked on the SIMA site and asked a few contractors but they never heard of the bid. I was hoping there were some contractors on this site that would like info and would solicit the village directly.

    Being where you are ,it looks like around 1700-2500.00 a lane mile for plowing.

    What was wrong with the 2 bids you received?
