The city, located about five miles south of Green Bay along the Fox River, will accept bids via fax or through Ipreo's PARITY system and broker-dealers can submit a tax-exempt bid, a taxable bid, or both, said Kathleen Aho, president of Springsted Inc., which is serving as financial adviser to De Pere.
