Arc of Baltimore Contract Draws Ire of Minority Business Leaders

BALTIMORE -- The state is set to award a $9.4 million contract to a Baltimore nonprofit to help clean local subway stations — a move that angers some minority business leaders.
The state Board of Public Works will vote June 6 on a five-year contract for the Arc Baltimore to provide janitorial services at Metro stations in Greater Baltimore. The Arc Baltimore is a nonprofit that provides jobs for people with developmental disabilities. The organization has held a contract with the state to provide janitorial services at area metro stations for nearly 10 years, said Stephen H. Morgan, executive director with the Arc Baltimore.
