City accepting bids for repainting of Fondy Farmers’ Market
Interested local residents and small businesses can now bid on a City of Milwaukee contract to repaint the Fondy Food Center, home of the Fondy Farmers’ Market at 2200 W. Fond Du Lac Ave., Alderman Russell W. Stamper, II announced.
“The Fondy Farmers’ Market is one of the great benefits of living in the 15th Aldermanic District, offering residents the opportunity to purchase fresh produce direct from the source and interact with the people who produce our food,” Alderman Stamper said. “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to revitalize this key neighborhood resource, and I would encourage any small business in the neighborhood to apply to be a part of this important project.”
The deadline for completed bids to be filed with the Department of City Development is 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, August 24, 2016. Bidders are required to take part in a mandatory walk-through of the work site at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, August 15, 2016. Qualified contractors are required to meet certain Small Business Enterprise and residency requirements to qualify.
“With a little know-how and elbow grease to reinvigorate the property, the market will be an even greater source of neighborhood pride,” Alderman Stamper said. “In the locally-focused spirit of the market, I’m hopeful we can find a contractor from the neighborhood to do this project.”
