City Delays Project to Take Advantage of Change in Prevailing Wage Law

It’s good to see the city being smart and using the change in the law for the taxpayers’ benefit.

West Bend officials will delay advertising a work contract, taking advantage of a change in the law, to determine if they are able to reduce the cost or solicit additional bids for a Public Works project.

Members of the Common Council unanimously voted Monday to permit city administrators to advertise a sanitary sewer extension for vendors to submit bids, with the caveat they publish it at the beginning of 2017 when changes to the prevailing wage law take effect.
