We provide materials and services that are required by the City, beginning with the determination of requirements and usually ending with the disposal of the materials acquired. Purchasing manages the business relationship between the end user, City employees, and the supplier of goods and services.
Purchases which do not involve an expenditure of more than one thousand five hundred dollars ($1,500.00), exclusive of freight or shipping charges, may be made without advertising or otherwise requesting competitive bids.

Purchases over one thousand five hundred dollars ($1,500.00) but not over twenty five thousand dollars ($25,000.00) require at least two written and competitive quotes.

Purchases over twenty five thousand dollars ($25,000.00) require advertising for sealed bids.
