Description

For the second time this year, the City of West Palm Beach is inviting small business owners, including minorities and women, to learn more about how they could potentially benefit from the city’s 1 percent sales tax increase.

Frank Hayden, the City’s Director of Procurement, is hosting a free workshop from 4-6 p.m. on Thursday, June 8, 2017 at the Pleasant City Recreation Center, 501 21st Street, West Palm Beach, FL 33407.

He will explain updated programs created to encourage more engagement among small-, minority-owned and female-owned businesses and the city’s streamlined processes for businesses to get certified.

Hayden will be joined by Mark Parks, City CFO, who will outline the City’s funding sources for new contracts; Kevin Volbrecht, director of Engineering Services, and Susan Burglund, Engineering Services project manager, who will talk specifically about the engineering opportunities with the City’s CIP Project; and Poonam Kalkat, director of Public Utilities, who will provide details on water and wastewater projects. Guests can talk to City representatives one-on-one, following their presentations.

“The City has its funding in place now, including funds generated from the 1 percent sales tax, and projects ready for bid,” Hayden said. “We are excited to share the most recent details of our upcoming projects. In January, more than 100 people attend our workshop. We want to welcome everyone who couldn’t attend the first outreach event and new business owners who are interested in working with us.”
