Request for Quotes

Studies have found ozone levels in the Tri-Cities that sometimes exceed federal standards. Ozone is an air pollutant that can lead to or exacerbate health problems. If these levels continue at the current rate, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency may designate the region as being in non-attainment in the future. This designation could force additional requirements on local industries, motorists, and potentially impair economic development in the region.

Our agency is currently seeking a qualified public relations firm to create and lead a marketing campaign in effort to generate awareness and educate our community about air quality, the impacts poor air quality has on our community and simple steps our community can take to reduce ozone.

Human Services Transportation Plan Survey

The Benton-Franklin Council of Governments is conducting a survey to learn about transportation needs of our community members. To better understand citizens’ use of, and attitudes towards, public transportation we have placed surveys in English and Spanish on Survey Monkey.

Your answers will inform the 2018 Human Services Transportation Plan currently under development. Please click the link below and complete the survey. With your help, we will further develop a connected and accessible public transportation network that serves all community members.

A link to the survey is here:
