Local Preference for County Contractors Closer to Passing City Council

Sangamon County vendors looking to do business with the City of Springfield are closer to getting a leg up over out-of-county contractors with a measure moving through the city council.


After failing on emergency passage last week, aldermen moved to put Ward 1 Alderman Frank Edwards’ local preference ordinance on the consent agenda.


The ordinance would give contractors within the limits of Sangamon County a 5 percent advantage over bids from outside the county.


Currently only vendors in the Springfield corporate limits get to come in 5 percent over outside vendors and be considered the lowest bid.
