A Local Government is feeling the push from the state set prevailing wage. The Village of Four Seasons recently had a semi complete building that it held its first board of trustees meeting in. The Village of Four Seasons has to put the building together in pieces due to the inability to afford the state prevailing wages to renovate the building all at once. So the first meeting was held without any air conditioning or carpeting because those basic items were not slated to be in the original budget. There are plans to install flooring to be installed when funds are available to the local municipality. This all began as a multiple phase project with the idea of adding garages for the city’s generator and for emergency equipment. Due to the high state law minimum prevailing wages the local government could not hire local contractors. The projects initial estimates were virtually doubled due to the cost of Prevailing Wage. It will be awhile longer before the expansion of the original building is completed.
