City of Abbotsford contracts security company to protect assets

$174,000-per-year deal approved by council

The City of Abbotsford has hired a security company to protect its assets and assist customers at seven of its sites.

On Monday, council unanimously approved a three-year contract with Neptune Security Services at a $174,928 annual cost. The deal comes with two one-year renewal options.

The company will patrol the municipality’s city hall precinct, King Road works yard, Riverside training centre, Marshall Road offices and Norrish Creek waterworks.

City hall will have full-time security throughout the day, while others will have nighttime patrols and gate-access control.

Neptune beat seven other companies that responded to the city’s request for proposals with the lowest bid. The bid was also evaluated on the company’s methodology and reputation.

City staff contacted references provided by Neptune.

“All references commented that Neptune has been prompt and professional in the services.”
