Douglas Shire Council will hold a briefing session on Tuesday for businesses interested in the tenders for plant and equipment hire.
Council’s tender request for the Hire of Mobile and Fixed Plant (Wet and Dry) includes everything from the supply of loaders and excavators to commercial vehicles, pumps and generators.
Mayor Julia Leu said the invitation for tenders for the hire of mobile and fixed plant was another key milestone for the new Douglas Shire Council.
“This is a great opportunity for local businesses in particular to demonstrate they have the capacity and skills required by Council to carry out these important tasks,” Mayor Leu said.
“It is an exciting milestone for our new Council as we look to forge partnerships with the business community to deliver essential services.”
The briefing session will be held at Douglas Shire Council’s Administration Office, 64-66 Front St, Mossman at 5pm on Tuesday 9 September. Attendance at this meeting is not mandatory, but highly recommended.
All of the tender documents are available on Council’s website under the Tenders section and need to be lodged by 2pm on Tuesday 30 September.
