Prevailing Wage

  • Local Representatives Testify On Prevailing Wage Proposal

    MIDDLETOWN — Newtown officials offered constructive comments along with members of the local legislative delegation at a public hearing in Middletown Tuesday, February 24, urging lawmakers in Hartford to grant municipalities relief from having to hire workers under a nearly quarter-century-old threshold that mandates prevailing wage consideration on most large municipal or state subsidized construction projects.

  • Prevailing Wage Explanation Missed The Mark

    To the Editor:

    A piece last week in The Newtown Bee centered on prevailing wage laws applicable to public construction in Connecticut. [“Town Attorney Reviews Prevailing Wage Implications With Council.”]  Unfortunately, Newtown Town Attorney David Grogins’ attempts to educate town officials on the subject was incomplete and, in part, wrong.
