Support for Small and Local Businesses
To equalize competitive disadvantages some local businesses face and encourage businesses to establish and remain in the county, the Santa Clara Valley Water District's Board of Directors has adopted a local business preference policy. This policy includes provisions which grant preferences to local businesses during the evaluation of bids and proposals.
