Paper bids will still be accepted. If submitting a paper bid, all bid content must be a in a sealed envelope. Bids must be delivered by the stated close date and time. No Emailed Or Faxed bids will be accepted. Any bids submitted on paper will be uploaded by city staff to the IonWave online bidding system.
