Today is the deadline for bids on Naples Pier Project

Published: Updated:

The Naples Pier is still damaged from Hurricane Ian almost two years later, but construction is set to begin in a few months.

Today the bid closes for the Naples pier project, and vendors submitting a bid were at City Hall so their packets could be reviewed.

Gary Young is the Deputy City Manager and CFO.

“Under FEMA guidelines, if a company who didn’t prequalify also bids on it, we will have to pre-qualify them and then evaluate all of the bids on their own merit of the cost. Today is a matter of identifying how many that’s going to be. And then, if there are both qualified and unqualified bidders, establishing the timeline for that to be evaluated. That timeline has already been established and that is July 8. The committee will meet to evaluate all proposals,” he explained.

No decision was made today, but the city of Naples will discuss the bids and meet again on July 8, 2024.
