CUYAHOGA COUNTY -- Cuyahoga County is giving local businesses a leg up in bidding for county business.
A new program will give a Cuyahoga County-based company a credit of two percent of the lowest bid submitted by a business bidder located outside of Cuyahoga County.
Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald and County Council leaders crafted the plan.
"Providing incentives to our local businesses makes sense. We want to keep local money in our local economy," FitzGerald said.
County Councilman Michael Gallagher said, "Having successful local businesses is beneficial to all county residents."
