Prince George’s council backs bill to boost equity in contracting

November 9, 2023

Local lawmakers passed a bill Tuesday aimed at enhancing participation of minority-owned and small businesses among tow truck companies used by the Prince George’s County Police, marking another attempt by the County Council to deliver on a promise to increase opportunities for local minority businesses.
The new rules recommend that 51 percent of department money budgeted for towing annually be spent with minority-owned and small businesses in Prince George’s County, and require that at least 29 percent of towing funds be spent with these vendors.
