The city of Eustis is looking to hire a new round of civil engineering, architecture and landscape architecture firms on continuing service contracts for 2018 and beyond, according to a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) issued this week.
The Lake County city of more than 20,700 residents is trying to design, fund and construct the first phase of aFerran Park/Lakefront Master Plan, with the possibility of seaplane landings. Funds from city property sales are meant to speed this lakefront development, but such new revenue has been minimal.
In its city budget for fiscal year 2017-18 that was adopted this fall, capital improvements that are planned include an eastern wastewater plant expansion that will allow the city to go from treating 300,000 gallons of wastewater per day to 1.3 million, make park improvements to Palmetto Plaza and build a new skate park.
Eustis' capital improvement plan will also call for new Historic Business District signs in the coming year, annual allocations for street paving, sidewalks and water and sewer line upgrades.
Applications for the continuing service contracts are due by Jan. 4 at 3 p.m. to the Purchasing Department at Eustis City Hall.
Full documents for RFQ no. 002-18 can be sourced through the city's Purchasing Department.
