Purchasing & Warehouse Division


The City of Newton Purchasing and Warehouse Division is responsible for the centralized purchasing and warehousing function for all city departments. The warehouse maintains stock on electrical products including street lights, power poles, cable, and transformers. In addition, stock is maintained for the repair and upkeep of the city's water and sewer lines, safety supplies, janitorial supplies, as well as a number of commodities used by city staff. If you are interested in providing goods and/ or services to the City of Newton, please read the information contained in the Purchasing Process Section. Complete the vendor forms and return to the purchasing staff.

Purchasing staff maintains a list of vendors that desire to provide goods and/or services to the city. Depending upon the estimated expenditure staff will prepare an informal Request for Quotes, for items that cost less than $90,000, or a formal bid for items that exceed $90,000 in cost. 

Regardless of whether the bid is informal or formal all quotations and bids are to be made on the following basis:
