Go back to previous page.

Effective May 1, 2013, the Local Preference Ordinance implemented the change in the law. Additionally, provisions are included in the new ordinance that allow the granting of preferences in certain discretionary contract solicitations to local businesses or businesses with knowledge of, and/or experience working with, local conditions where appropriate.

To comply with the Local Preference Ordinance, bidders are required to submit a Local Preference Program Identification Form as part of their response to some City solicitations.
