Green Purchasing Policy

The Town of Boonsboro adopted a Green Purchasing Policy in May of 2014 and updated it on July 1, 2023.

The Town used the template provided by Sustainable Maryland almost word for word as its policy. Staff presented the policy at a workshop meeting of the Boonsboro Mayor and Council. The policy will provide the Town a guide to consider when making purchases. The Town does not have an existing procurement policy in place, thus the Council and staff felt that the Green Purchasing Policy will provide a good basis for items to consider when purchasing, and continue to move the Town forward with sustainable practices. The Mayor and Council adopted the Policy at a Regular Meeting on May 5, 2014. Town Manager Clark has subsequently shared the Policy with those staff that make purchases and hopes to implement further specific reference documents based upon the policy to move forward in the process of green purchasing.
