The Clerk presented the Board with a BID REQUEST as suggested by the Wisconsin Towns Association. Some of the suggested entries is to ask for a Performance Bond in the amount of 100% of the project or notify the owner of errors in the contract. The Board will consider using some of the wording in our next published bid.
The Wisconsin Towns Association asked that each town pass a Resolution opposing the changes to the prevailing wage law applicable to any public work contract over $2,000 that Governor Doyle included in the state budget proposal, AB75. Currently the prevailing wage requirements only apply to multiple trade public works projects over $234,000 and single public works projects over $48,000. They feel this should be voted upon as an individual bill and not included in the State budget. Lee Wilmsen made a motion to approve RESOLUTION NO. 2009-01 Opposing Changes to Wisconsin Prevailing Wage law; 2nd Gene Mittlestadt; all in favor; motion carried.
The BOARD OF REVIEW will be opened on May 13, 2009 at 6:25 p.m. and adjourned to a later date.
