Sealed Bids / Vendors
The City of Eustis does not have a system in place that will allow us to accept online bids, therefore, all formal sealed bids will continue to be received at the Purchasing Dept. within City Hall. All vendors interested in doing business with the City of Eustis are encouraged to contact us and request to be added to our vendor database. This database connects vendors and their corresponding commodity categories and when a need for a product or service arises, this information can be queried accordingly.
