The Purchasing Department ensures that taxpayer dollars are being spent in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. To achieve this, the Purchasing Department solicits by telephone, fax, or e-mail sealed written quotes and sealed written bids and proposals.

Sealed written quotes are opened at 10:30 a.m. and sealed bids and proposals are opened at 11:00 a.m. in the Purchasing office.

It is the responsibility of the Purchasing Department to purchase:

· Materials, equipment, and supplies for all city departments.
· School lunches to custodial supplies.
· Co-sponsor an annual auction for outdated equipment for any city department.

Outside the door of the Purchasing office is a list of supplies and services that are currently out for bid. For more information on how to submit a bid or proposal, please call or see a division employee.
