The Anne Arundel County Office of Central Services, in conjunction with the county Department of Public Works, Anne Arundel Economic Development Corporation and the Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) Committee, will host New Opportunities in Construction on Tuesday, April 15 from 4-6 p.m., at the Central Sanitation Facility Complex, 445 Maxwell Frye Road in Millersville.
This outreach event targets local contractors and will focus on providing small businesses, women, minority and veteran-owned construction firms, suppliers, engineers and landscape architects with specific information and requirements for conducting business with Anne Arundel County in relation to new stormwater management initiatives and upcoming capital projects.
