PURPOSE OF RFQ:

The City of Natalia, Texas (hereinafter referred to as “City”) is requesting quotes for the desire of field service trucks for the operations of code compliance and water/sewer departments. The City prefers quotes for new vehicles; however, City will consider low mileage used vehicles that meet the minimum specifications below for comparison pricing.

The City requests quotes to be based on unit price as the quantity, and/or type, of vehicles desired may differ from the city’s anticipated needs and/or budgetary limitations. This is an informal quotation process conducted in such a manner that is fair to submitters to provide the City with the best quote for a product that meets the needs and is in the best interest of the City.
