Request for Proposals - Snow Removal and Security Services
Grandmont Rosedale Development Corporation (GRDC) is seeking proposals from qualified contractors to provide both, Snow Plowing Services and Security Services, for the Grandmont Rosedale Communities in northwest Detroit.
In 2014, the City of Detroit passed an ordinance allowing for the establishment of Special Assessment Districts (SAD) within designated neighborhoods to fund supplemental security services and snow removal within those neighborhoods. GRDC is planning to seek establishment of a Special Assessment District within the Grandmont Rosedale Communities, which when established, would provide the funding stream to support these services.

What is a Special Assessment District?
The Special Assessment District is a plan to strengthen the Grandmont Rosedale neighborhoods by providing supplement security and snow removal services. The cost of supplemental services would be shared by all area property owners and services would be administered locally by GRDC. Many community members have collaborated to bring this opportunity to our neighborhoods and are now working with the City of Detroit and local neighborhood associations to make this concept a reality.
