Title
Amending Section 33.07(7)(k)6. and Section 39.02(9)(f)1. of the Madison General Ordinances to eliminate statutory references to municipal prevailing wage laws.
Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This ordinance eliminates references to the State’s municipal prevailing wage law, which was repealed as part of the 2015 state budget (2015 Wis. Act 55). The repeal of the State’s local prevailing wage requirements, as set forth in Wis. Stat. § 66.0903 (2013-2014 Stats.), goes into effect on January 1, 2017. The City may still be subject to prevailing wage requirements under the federal Davis-Bacon Act for certain federally funded projects. Accordingly, the references to the municipal prevailing wage laws are being changed to apply more broadly to any applicable prevailing wage law, which would include municipal prevailing wages should the State laws be changed in the future to allow that.
