Contract documents, bid sheets and specifications can be obtained at the office of the Director of Utilities, 576 West Park Avenue, Barberton, Ohio 44203. There is a non-refundable fee of $10.00 for specifications. If specifications are to be mailed, it will be the responsibility of the bidder to make arrangements for mailing.

There is no charge or fee required to receive specifications via email.  Please send your company name, address, phone and fax numbers, along with a contact person’s name and email address to utilities@cityofbarberton.com. Once this information is received a copy of the spec book will be emailed. In order for bid proposals to be considered, the spec book must be in numerical order (with all pages, including the title page) and bound together (either by a binding comb or staples). Incomplete or unbound proposals will not be accepted. Bidder must hold firm the prices for one (1) year from the date of approval by the Board of Control.

Each bidder is required to furnish with its proposal, a certified check on a solvent bank in the amount of $100.00 or a bid bond of ten percent (10%) payable to the City of Barberton as a guarantee that if the bid is accepted, a contract will be entered into and its performance properly secured. Bid bond or certified check must be attached to the front cover of the specification book.  Should any bid be rejected, such check will be returned to the bidder.  Should any bid be accepted, such check will be returned upon the proper execution and securing of said contract.  

Each bid must contain the full name of the party or parties submitting the proposal and all persons interested therein.

The City reserves the right to reject any and all bids and to award the contract to the lowest and best bidder.  Prospective bidders will note that the Board of Control has the discretion to make the determination that any bid submitted by a contractor or business located within the City of Barberton, which is not more than 10% higher than the low dollar bid is, in fact, the lowest and best bid for the contract (Ordinance 30-1988, Section 2).

The bids shall be sealed and marked in the lower left hand face of the envelope:  “Bid for One Year’s Supply of Water Distribution Supplies and Sewer Collection Supplies To Be Opened Thursday, October 30, 2014, at 1:30 p.m.”

Barberton City Has
Levels of TOTAL HALOACETIC ACIDS (HAAS)
above Drinking Water Standards

Our water system recently violated the maximum contaminant level (MCL) for TOTAL HALOACETIC ACIDS (HAA5). The average level of TOTAL HALOACETIC ACIDS (HAA5) over the last four quarters was 0.063 MG/L. The standard for TOTAL HALOACETIC ACIDS (HAAS) IS 0.060 MG/L.

What Should I Do?

• You do not need to use an alternative (e.g. bottled) water supply. However, if you have specific health concerns, consult your doctor.

What Does This Mean?

The levels detected do not pose an immediate risk to your health. However, some people who drink water containing haloacetic acids in excess of the MCL over many years may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
