Requesting Plans and Specifications.  One set of bidding documents for each project listed below is available without charge to prospective bidders, subcontractor bidders, suppliers, and contractor plan room services. A  fee will apply to additional sets and to bidding documents requested by parties other than those listed above.  The fee will be based on plan printing costs with a minimum of $20.00.

Plan Holder Certification Form.  Before plans and specifications can be distributed, the Plan Holder Certification Form (one per project) must be completed and received by the Public Works Department. Plan Holder Certification forms may be sent by fax (515-239-5404) or delivered in person to our office at City Hall, 515 Clark Avenue, Room 212. Once this form is received, plans and specifications may be picked up from our office or mailed via standard USPS to the address indicated on the Plan Holder Certification form.
