SUBJECT:           RESULTS OF THE PORT & HARBOR FISH GRINDING FACILITY OPERATION &                                               MAINTENANCE CONTRACT REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL

 

The Port and Harbor advertised for proposals for the seasonal operation of the Fish Grinding Facility.  The successful proposer would be contracted to operate and maintain the Fish Waste Grinding Facility during sport/commercial fishing seasons, May 1 to October 20, for a consecutive three years, 2013 to 2016.  We also invited alternative proposals from firms or individuals seeking to use fish carcasses that are collected at the Fish Grinding Facility, in more useful ways than what our current program is performing.

The request for proposal closed on Thursday, February 13, 2014 at 4:30 pm.  One bid was received from The Fish Factory, LLC.

Staff reviewed the single proposal and is in favor of awarding the contract to The Fish Factory, LLC, Fish Dock Road, Homer, Alaska 99603 for the operation and maintenance of the Fish Grinding Facility for CY 2013 to 2016.

 

Recommendation

Staff recommends City Council award the contract for the operation and maintenance of the Fish Grinding Facility for CY 2013 to 2016 per the Memorandum of Agreement between the City of Homer and The Fish Factory for calendar years 2013 to 2016.
