Role Reversal

Tonight was the first contractor meeting I've attended at which the contractors were informing the city about biodiesel instead of vice versa. When members attending the Northwest Utility Contractors Association meeting tonight asked a Bureau of Environmental Services construction manager about a new B5 mandate on all the city's public works projects, they were met with a blank stare. I had heard that the city was considering incorporating a biodiesel requirement into all their construction contracts. But this was the first I'd heard it was already happening. NUCA will have a special meeting on biodiesel next month to inform all of its members about the new requirements.
