Bidders may still choose to submit hard copies. The City reserves the right to specify bids be filed only in hard copy or electronically for any procurement. The Charter Amendment will also allow notice inviting bids to be advertised online.Effect: If adopted, the amendment will allow an additional means of noticing and receiving bids by electronic submission.This Measure was placed on the ballot by the City of Fresno.
