The Briny Breezes Town Council will seek bids this month to provide police protection for the 488-mobile home town for the next three years or beyond.
For the past three years, the town has paid neighboring Ocean Ridge $185,000 annually for police service, including nightly patrols and prompt response to calls.
The town will send specifications to Ocean Ridge, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Gulf Stream and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, but any agency may submit a proposal. Only Ocean Ridge and Boynton Beach responded to bid requests in 2010.
The town is seeking at minimum three-year contract. Proposals are due June 15.
