The City of DeFuniak Springs is accepting sealed bids at City Hall located at 71 U.S. Highway 90 West (PO Box 685) DeFuniak Springs, Florida 2433 from companies/individuals with experience and expertise in exhibit and interpretive displays and signage to conceptualize, consult, plan, design, develop/create/manufacture, and install up to 17 displays.  The selected bidder will work under the direction of the City’s grant administrator. It is anticipated that the selected vendor will be very involved in suggesting and fully developing the concepts, content, and final designs. The vendor’s preliminary concepts, content and designs will be refined in cooperation with the grant administrator and perhaps representatives and custodians of the historic structures and sites in the DeFuniak Springs Historic District (in and around Circle Drive, DeFuniak Springs, FL) where the outdoor displays are to be located.  The interpretive signage/displays will be placed at 17 locations within that part of the Historic District which comprised the original, once-gated, campus/resort of the Florida Chautauqua. The project schedule will need to include time for review, comment, revisions and approval of both content and graphics. The vendor will be required to provide a warranty for the durability of the displays for a period of 3 to 5 years.
