Specialized work may include master planning and designing sustainable parks, implementing green infrastructure, site preservation, restoration, land management, water conservation technologies, and best management practicies for using green infrastructure technology on public properties.
The initial contract term will be 12 months, with the county holding an option to renew for up to two more years.
Applications are due Nov. 1 at 3 p.m., to be delivered in person or by mail to the Lake County Procurement Services Division in Leesburg.
