When the funding source does not preclude the Mayor and Commissioners of the Town of North East from doing so, they reserve the right to show preference to local bidders in the purchase of supplies, equipment, or services. The amount shall not exceed six percent (6%) of the amount bid or quoted and/or sixty thousand dollars ($60,000), whichever is less. A “local bidder” is defined as an Individual, or business that maintains a place of business or maintains an inventory of merchandise and/or equipment in Cecil County, is licensed by Cecil County or the State of Maryland, if required, and is subject to Cecil County real and/or personal property taxes. Any local bidder in default on payment of any town, county or state tax or license shall not be eligible to receive preference until all taxes or licenses due are paid.
