PITTSYLVANIA COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — The Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors agreed to adopt a “Buy Local During COVID-19 Pandemic” resolution to help local businesses affected by Gov. Ralph Northam’s response to the coronavirus.
According to officials, the “Buy Local During COVID-19 Pandemic” resolution — which was adopted during the Board of Supervisors’ meeting on Thursday, April 2 — directs the County Administrator to take additional measures to guarantee local businesses in both Danville and Pittsylvania County receive priority bid opportunities on county purchasing needs.
In addition, the resolution encourages Pittsylvania County citizens to buy local.
“This is a historically difficult time for many local businesses in our community and across the country,” says Board Chairman Bob Warren. “We want to make it clear to our local business owners that we support them and will make sure that they are considered in our procurement of goods and services.”
