Project Overview: The City of Winthrop is seeking qualified contractors to submit bids for the
construction of a new police garage. The purpose of this project is to provide suitable facilities
for the Police Department to store and maintain their vehicles and equipment. The Police Chief has
provided specifications and requirements for the construction of the new police garage, and the
City Council has authorized the City Administration to proceed with the bidding process.
Project Specifications: The City of Winthrop is seeking qualified contractors to submit bids for
the construction of a new police garage. The police garage will sit next to and be connected to the
police station at 307 N Pleasant St [Site Overhead Attached]. The garage must have 4 stalls,
suitable for police SUVs and trucks to be stored. One stall will be used for evidence lockup and
must contain a separate and secure entrance. It would be suitable for the garage to have in-floor
heat to melt snow in the winter. All garage bays must have floor drains. One stall should act as a
wash bay to keep cruisers clean. An eye cleansing or washing station along with a large utility
sink is needed in the garage for cleaning and decontamination purposes. A medium sized
indoor/outdoor kennel for stray dogs is requested on the east facing wall with the stipulation of
making this access point securable from outside intruders through the dog door in the wall. The
outdoor kennel needs to be completely covered to deter intruders. There should be a cement skirt in
front of the garage to the roadway incorporated in the price of this project.
Bid Submission Deadline: Bids must be submitted to the City Administration no later than
September 20, 2023. Late submissions will not be accepted.
Bid Submission Address: City Administration Office 305 N Main ST. PO BOX Y. Winthrop,
MN 55396. Or can be emailed to email@example.com.
