PURPOSE To provide right-of-way mowing, fertilization of turf, and litter removal in the Bithlo area. DISCUSSION Eighteen bids were received  in response  to this Invitation for Bids.   The bids were evaluated for price, responsiveness and responsibility.  Millennium Property Services, the  low  bidder,  currently is  performing less  than  satisfactorily on  another county contract.   Also, the amount of Millennium's  bid is considered  inadequate.   The per acre amount in Millennium's bid is $39 compared to the per acre amount of $45 staff believes is necessary to ensure adequate performance.  This historical cost was listed in the solicitation.  The bids of Monroe Lawn Care, Coleman's Landscaping,  Inc. and Dale Bailey's Environmental  Service were determined to be non-responsive  due to their failure to submit a list of manpower and/or equipment to be used on the contract. They were also given an opportunity to provide this information after bid opening but failed   to  respond.     Therefore,  recommend   award  to  second  lowest  responsive, responsible  bidder,  Begley's  Cleaning   Service,  Inc.  dba  Millennium  Grounds  & Waters. 40
