December 1, 2009 

Dear Ward 5 Constituents:

 I hope this letter finds you in a thankful spirit as the holiday season continues.  I am grateful to have served this community throughout 2009 and will press on to see that Ward 5 is in a position to progress. In an effort to keep you abreast, I have listed some key dates that have significant relevance to the movement of F Street. 

Please be aware the city of Las Vegas invites qualified firms and/or individuals to submit written proposals to provide public outreach and communications services to the residents for the construction project to reopen F Street.  There will be a Pre-proposal Conference Dec. 8 at 10:30 a.m. in the Purchasing and Contracts Division Conference Room, First Floor, City Hall Complex and any interested parties should attend this meeting. Questions or concerns will be addressed.  A training session specific to the public solicitation process will be offered immediately following the Pre-proposal Conference and pre-registration is required prior to close of business Dec. 7.  You may register by contacting Lloyd Davis at 229-2487. More information on the proposal can be found by visiting the city's Web site.

The proposal deadline for public outreach and communications services for F Street is Jan. 5, 2010, by 1:30 p.m.  A panel made up of city of Las Vegas and NDOT engineers along with Office of Communication personnel will evaluate the proposals and make the final selection with oversight from the city of Las Vegas' Purchasing and Contract Division.

Please share this information with anyone who may not have been included in the Ward 5 e-newsletter distribution and do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Warm Regards,

Ricki Y. Barlow

City of Las Vegas Councilman

Ward 5
