Control of W.Va. Courtesy Patrol Will Remain in Same Hands


The West Virginia Courtesy Patrol’s longtime operator has been awarded a new one-year contract.

Citizens Conservation Corps of West Virginia was one of two bidders for the contract. The other was IncidentClear, which operates service patrols in several other states.
The Charleston Gazette reports  state officials approved Citizens Conservation Corps of West Virginia’s bid on Wednesday.
The Beckley-based nonprofit’s bid was lower than the bid submitted by IncidentClear.
The Courtesy Patrol provides roadside assistance to motorists.
Several legislators voiced concerns about high salaries paid to executives of Citizens Conservation Corps of West Virginia during last week’s special session. The Tomblin administration determined that the state doesn’t have the authority to set salaries for executives of nonprofits.
