Alleghany County Spends $85,000 with 39 Local Vendors in August

August 30, 2018 

Sparta, NC – Alleghany County today announced that its “Buying Locally” initiative has resulted in the County Government spending $84,787.06 with 39 local vendors during the month of August.   

“The current Board of Commissioners have emphasized buying goods and services from Alleghany County vendors whenever possible.  The county Department Managers and staff have taken this initiative and run with it,” stated Michael James, County Manager.  “We always strive to balance being good stewards of taxpayer money with supporting our local economy.  That means sometimes we do have to go outside the county to obtain goods and services.  But our county employees make every effort to transact business locally.  Since we do not have any ‘big box’ retailers here in Alleghany County this money is being spent at family-owned businesses.  These vendors live here and in turn re-spend that money locally.  As an additional note, with the way the calendar fell in August, we had three accounts payable check runs instead of the normal two which partially explains the increased spending.” 

During January, the County purchased such items as HVAC repairs at the Wilkes Community College center, auto body work to a damaged police car, printing services and auto parts in addition to the regular quarterly payment for the animal shelter and monthly payment for the jail inmate meals from locally-based, family-owned businesses. 

“We are proud to support our local small businesses.  Alleghany County is home to many fine vendors.  We have seen several new businesses open this year and will continue to support the local economy.  We encourage our citizens to do the same,” added Mark Evans, Board Chairman and small business owner. 

The buying locally results by vendor are updated approximately every two weeks on the county website at the following link:  http://alleghanycounty-nc.gov/announcements/category/buying-locally/
