The committee is charged with determining the most commonly paid construction wages in Marshall County. (as required by the Indiana Common Construction Wage Act (IC 5-16-7-1 et seq.)
The Common Construction Wage meeting will be held at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, March 5th in room 203 of the Marshall County Building. This is a meeting that is open to the public.
The wage scale selected is the minimum pay scale. A company bidding on the projects can pay a higher scale if they want to.
