Who is cleaning what has been determined for the next three years, at minimum, for a saving to the city of $35,000.

City council unanimously awarded the janitorial services contract for the city hall/courthouse to 6-4 Building Maintenance Ltd. at a price of $118,572 plus GST for a three-year period. The same company was awarded the janitorial services contract for the RCMP detachment at the price of $36,060.

The three-year contract for janitorial services for the public works building was awarded to TBCP Holdings, doing business as Bliss Commercial Cleaning, for the price of $22,279.80 plus GST.

Janitorial services for the Salmon Arm fire halls were awarded to Salmon Arm Janitorial for $14,220 plus GST.

The mayor and the city’s corporate officer have the option to extend the contracts for a further two-year term.

City staff noted the new contracts will save the city $35,000 over three years based on current 2014 rates. Staff noted price wasn’t the only consideration, but the contracts went to the lowest bid in each case.
