BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — On Tuesday, Birmingham City Council passed a new maintenance plan, also known as the “TRANE” contract. It’s a $61 million contract where $18 million goes toward businesses owned by minorities, women or people who are disabled.
“This is a $61 million deal that will allow a local bank such as Citizens Trust as well as another minority financial services company to both obtain nearly 33 percent of this deal,” Councilor Lundy said. “That fact alone is simply outstanding and something that that sets a precedent for additional building opportunities in the future”
The planned improvements across the city include updating roofing and windows and fixing plumbing leaks. The projects will happen over the next 2 years.
