Bill summary

Adds a new section to the Charter of the City of Greensboro (Charter; City), SL 1959-1137, as amended, to authorize the City to employ and allow civilian personnel to investigate traffic crashes involving property damage only and issue citations for infractions, naming these personnel Civilian Traffic Investigators (investigators). Details nine requirements of the City and investigators regarding the employment of investigators, including establishing minimum employment standards and compliance with specified training conditions, equipment issuance, and limits of investigator authority. Specifies that investigators cannot be issued a weapon and have no authority to arrest or issue criminal process. Requires the City to report to the specified NCGA committees by December 31, 2023, on the training and use of investigators between the date the act becomes law and November 1, 2023.

Enacts the following provisions to the Charter. Authorizes the City to establish a race- and gender-neutral small business enterprise program to promote the development of small businesses and enhance the opportunities for small businesses to participate in City contracts. Provides the City flexibility to establish bid and proposal specifications and define the term "small business enterprise" as appropriate and consistent with the City's contracting practices. Authorizes the City to refuse to award a contract to a bidder who was considered based on its efforts to comply with the program requirements but is determined to have failed to do so. Provides that the program is intended to supplement specified public contract requirements. Requires goals or efforts established to achieve veteran, minority, and women's business participation pursuant to state law to take precedence over the goals of the program. Deems the program consistent with State policy to promote and utilize small business enterprises consistent with state law.
