The Porter County
Board of Parks and Recreation is currently seeking a qualified food service
vendor to provide services during specifically identified events at Sunset
Hill Farm Park.
The first upcoming
event is the Valparaiso High School Cross Country meet, scheduled for August
26, 2014. The Porter County Board of Parks and Recreation will receive
submittals from qualified food vendors and then negotiate a contract and
complete a comprehensive scope of services. Qualified vendors are invited to
submit qualifications to the Porter County Board of Parks and Recreation by
August 15, 2014, for consideration.
Sunset Hill Farm
Park is a 238 acre parcel gifted to the Porter County Board of Parks and
Recreation by Colonel Robert Heffron Murray. The park is at the intersection
of Meridian Rd. and US Hwy. 6 in Liberty Township. The property hosts
numerous activities, festivals and events. Although food concessions are
available to patrons at some events, there is currently no contracted food
service vendor providing service at many of the functions and activities.
“We are trying to
find new ways to serve our park users and make coming to Sunset Hill Farm a
more enjoyable experience,” said Walter Lenckos, County Park Superintendent.
Once a vendor is chosen and the Department identifies ways to provide onsite
vending services the hope is to create a more permanent provision of
qualifications can be submitted no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, August
15, 2014 in writing to the following address: Superintendent, Porter County
Department of Parks and Recreation, Walter Lenckos, 155 Indiana Ave., Suite
304, Valparaiso, IN, 46383.
