August 6, 2013 – Austin, Texas – City officials representing Garland, TX, Municipal Court re-awarded the contract for delinquent collection services to current vendor, Municipal Services Bureau (MSB). This new contract will take both entities into a 10 year partnership of working together to serve the taxpayers of Garland.
“MSB will continue to work diligently on behalf of the City and generate additional revenue which will ultimately benefit Garland taxpayers. So far MSB has raised an additional $5,000,000 in revenue for the city,” said Bruce Cummings, CEO of MSB. “This vote of confidence means a great deal to everyone at MSB as we continue to pursue our passion of providing the highest level of ethical collections for government entities across the nation” Cummings added.
MSB was chosen as the successful vendor after an extensive competitive bid process involving several firms. Garland Municipal Court first awarded the business to MSB in early 2004, and has re-awarded the contract to MSB several times.
MSB has worked exclusively with governmental entities for more than 22 years. “It’s that niche of only working with government entities which allows MSB to determine the best solutions to improve recovery rates and to generate additional revenue for essential government services,” said Cummings.
