Columbus Mayor Kristen Brown has appointed two members to the Common Construction Wage Committee that determines the common wage scale for the city's major public works and construction projects.
Loren Day, a foreman for Southern Roofing Inc. and operator of Speedy Clean Laundry Corp., was appointed as the industry representative on the committee. Robert Sullivan, an Instrumentation Technical Support Specialist at the Cummins Technical Center, was appointed as a taxpayer representative on the committee.
"Loren and Bob are responsible, knowledgeable members of our community who will ensure the common wage set by the committee is fair both to the workers and the taxpayers," Mayor Brown said.
Chris Schilling, the city's communications and program coordinator, explains the Common Construction Wage Committee is a five-member committee that determines the common wages paid to construction workers in Bartholomew County. It is used when the city awards contracts for the construction of public works projects of $350,000 or more. Schilling says the committee includes members representing labor, industry, the Associated Builders and Contractors and two taxpayers. He says the city is responsible for appointing the industry representative and one of the taxpayer representatives.
The Common Construction Wage Committee meets at least every 90 days, but can meet more often.
