Sunol, California (EastBayDaily) — Western Star Nursery, a wholesale nursery in the Bay Area and Sacramento, is excited to announce it has recently been approved as a small business under the County of Alameda’s Small, Local and Emerging Business (SLEB) Program. The program, which aims to promote the patronage of small and local businesses, gives preference points to bids from contractors for government jobs within the County when they partner with SLEB businesses.
Any business bidding on a city, county, state or federal project that will be installed in Alameda County can qualify for up to10% preference points (5% local and 5% certified) by partnering with Bay Area landscape supply wholesaler Western Star Nursery.
“This competitive advantage may very well mean the difference in the job being awarded to you,” says Sally Painter, owner of Western Star Nursery. “Please call us to for our certification number and a copy of the certificate to include with your bid(s).”
The program was developed because “the County is vitally interested in promoting the growth of small and emerging local businesses by means of increasing the participation of these businesses in the County’s purchase of goods and services.” For more information about the Alameda County SLEB program, visit http://www.acgov.org/auditor/sleb/.
