Only one offer to clear snowy side streets

October 7, 2009 (CHICAGO) The city is asking for bids from contractors.

Plote Construction submitted the only bid to perform the service. The company is offering a flat rate of $2.9 million per-month from November 15th to April 15th.

Aldermen who oppose the idea of privatizing snow removal say the lack of bids is one reason the idea should be scrapped.
