The Purcellville Town Council last week authorized a formal Request for Proposal seeking for companies or organizations to help preserve and manage the town-owned Fireman’s Field complex.
In voting unanimously to issue the RFP, council members stressed that their priority was to preserve and protect the property, which includes the Bush Tabernacle, Fireman’s Field, Haske Field and the Dillon Woods picnic area. The intent is to retain town ownership of the entire property while also generating more revenue to cover costs, holding taxes down.
Initial questions from interested bidders should be sent to the town by Aug. 14 for review. A tour of the property then will be scheduled. The RFP will be open for formal responses until 10 a.m. Sept. 5.
Questions about the RFP should be directed to the Procurement Specialist Kathy Elgin at email@example.com or 540-338-7093.
