Request for Proposals / Qualifications

Chelan County, Washington
Request for Proposals for Carter parcel Cleanup Project


I           Purpose, Background, Scope of Service, Special Instructions, and Security at  the Project Site

  • A.        Purpose of Request for Proposal

                        The work to be performed under this Request of Proposal consists of removal and disposal of mobile structures, vehicles, junk, and motorized equipment from the site.  Vehicles and equipment which are removed will become the contractor’s property.  The County’s Code Enforcement Officer will designate which vehicles and equipment are to be removed.  At present, the County estimates that several dozen vehicles or more will be removed from the site.  The number of vehicles designated for removal may vary due to the landowner’s activity in removing vehicles from the site or bringing in additional vehicles.  There are two mobile homes that will need to be removed, recycled or disposed of and many cubic yards of offending materials including junk, unattached wheels, unattached tires, metal pieces, appliances, recreational vehicles, and boats that will need to be recycled or disposed of. Interested parties are encouraged to contact the number below to obtain a detailed list of vehicles and junk on the property. If a bidder is unable to undertake demolition of the mobile homes, they are still encouraged to bid on the junk and vehicle cleanup. Two or more contractors may be hired for this project. The mobile homes and  offending materials will also become the property of the contractor(s).  The chosen contractor(s) may recycle and/or dispose of this material as required so long as disposal complies with federal, state, and county laws and regulations. An access right-of-way exists along one side of the property which allows a neighbor to access their property. The contractor(s) will be asked to not obstruct this right- of-way while undertaking the project.

                        The property is located at 3800 W Malaga Road. The project site consists of Lot 1, Chelan County Short Subdivision No. 817, Maxine Anderson, as recorded in Book 788, at pages 502-504, records of Chelan county, according to the survey thereof recorded in Book 11 of Surveys as page 93, records of said county in Chelan County, Washington.  Potential contractors shall not approach nor view the property without first contacting the Code Enforcement Deputy representing the Chelan County Community Development Department.


The Chelan County Superior Court has issued an order directing removal and        disposal of vehicles and debris from the illegal junk yard because the site is not            zoned for this use and the site is deemed a public nuisance.
