State Land Bank Seeking Bids to Help Protect and Maintain Properties Across State
December 10, 2021
The State Land Bank Authority (SLBA) issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) to engage a firm to provide maintenance services on the SLBA's parcels throughout the state of Michigan. This firm will be retained for a period of one year with the option of two additional annual extensions of the contract.
"The State Land Bank serves an important role in community and economic development by returning property to productive use," said Emily Doerr, Executive Director of the SLBA. "We look forward to this partnership that will help ensure all SLBA owned properties continue to remain in a safe and secure condition."
The SLBA owns approximately 2,600 parcels throughout the state and actively maintains about one third of them. The SLBA is looking to contract with one firm to provide mowing, snow removal and other general maintenance services, including but not limited to boarding up vacant structures, trash removal, inspection, securing utilities, certain property updates and other services required to ensure properties are maintained and protected.
Proposals are due to the SLBA by Jan.10 at 5 p.m. Any questions should be submitted in writing by Dec. 20 at 5 p.m. to email@example.com.
