The City of Red Deer needs a new operator for Lion’s Campground.
A tender for this year’s operation and maintenance at the Riverside Drive facility has gone out.
The city terminated its operator and assumed direct operation of the campground last September until its closure Oct. 1.
“They weren’t able to meet the obligations under the contract,” said Deb Comfort, the city’s neighbourhood facilities and community development supervisor.
A site visit for prospective operators takes place on Friday.
The campground is open annually from May 1 to Sept. 30.
It includes 126 full- and semi-serviced sites, washrooms, showers and laundry facilities.
Tender information is available online at www.purchasingconnection.ca. Tenders close on Feb. 7.
“The request for proposals is an opportunity to bring their ideas and suggestions to the operations model,” Comfort said.
“More ambitious is to have reservations available by April, but time will tell.”
