CCCWV once again wins Courtesy Patrol contract

Beckley-based Citizens Conservation Corps of West Virginia was the winner of the contract for the Courtesy Patrol, which assists stranded motorists along the state’s four-lane highways.

CCCWV outbid IncidentClear by more than $1 million annually with a bid of $3.1 million, $195,900 less than the non-profit’s previous bid. The CCCWV has operated the Courtesy Patrol since 1998. The Legislature revamped the Courtesy Patrol’s funding this month, making it an expense schedule reimbursement rather than upfront deposits.

Chris Stadelman, communications director for Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, made the announcement Wednesday afternoon.  

Courtesy Patrol director Jennifer Douglas commented in an e-mail, “We are very excited to be awarded the bid and entrusted to operate a service that now spans nearly 16 years, 70 million miles, 3 million phone calls and 285,000 assists. We recognize how important the Courtesy Patrol is to our state and are honored to be given the responsibility to continue providing this service.”
