Springfield Ordinance To Boost Minority- Or Woman-Owned Businesses On Hold


A proposal that could allow for more City of Springfield contracts to be awarded to businesses owned by minorities and women has been tabled… and one alderman says there needs to be some work done before it passes.

 

The proposal modifies the manner of giving preferences to businesses owned by women and minorities.  Aldermen Doris Turner supports the concept, but says that she wants to ensure the proposal doesn't allow for any abuse.  Turner wants to avoid a scenario where a qualifying business gets a city contract…and then subcontracts it out to a business that isn’t minority- or woman-owned.
