The commission and the Community Redevelopment Agency also approved unanimously to authorize City Manager Jon C. Williams to execute an agreement with the Black Business Community Development Corporation to provide Housing Rehabilitation Grant Administration and Construction Services in an amount not to exceed $240,000.
The proposal is for the benefit and assistance to the homeowners of the east Winter Garden neighborhood community. Homeowner residents would have the opportunity to improve and upgrade internal and external features of their homes from the CRA housing rehabilitation grant program.
The city received three proposals for the RFP where the selection committee evaluated, scored and ranked the submittals. There were eight criteria considered during the evaluation.
The Black Business Community Development Corporation was ranked first place by the selection committee as the most suitable and responsible bidder/consultant to provide administration and construction services supporting the grant.
