The Resource Opportunities Centre (ROC), a community development organization serving the Prospect Communities, seeks quotations on provision of the following goods/services:

Snow removal (One season contract) – November 15th, 2021 – April 15th, 2022

The ROC is looking for a qualified vendor to provide snow removal for the Prospect Road Community Centre, 2141 Prospect Road, Hatchet Lake, Nova Scotia.

Snow removal services are required for the parking lot (including entrance from the road) and fire lane, also for the service road to the back of the facility to provide access for refuse collection and other service vehicles. Salting is required in the parking lot/fire land/entrance from the road when snow is removed; salt and sand required on request for the side road and back of facility (these areas are gravelled). Snow removal/salting is required before 6:00 AM on weekdays following a snow event; 7:00 AM on Saturday, Sunday or holidays. Snow removal, for the purposes of this contract, does not include snow clearing of doorways/entrances to the facility.  An additional quote for this (snow clearing of doorways and entrances) will be considered if the service is available. At the end of the snow season, the contractor will return to remedy any issues/damage (ie gravel displacement, lawn repair, relocation of parking lot curbs etc.), and ensure the service road is returned to its usual operating condition.
