My guess is, if this contract is partially funded by federal money, prevailing wages must be paid no matter if union or not.
The prevailing wage law is very corrupt, but that is for another article.
Plus we are all paying more for electricity since the wind power companies get paid for their wind generated power whether it is needed or not. This, in a State with tremendous hydro power that is not even considered renewable. How crazy can it get?
I think you left out part of Wiktionary's definition of 'mental gymnastics'. I believe this is what Norman was referring to:
'Inventive, complex arguments used to justify unjustifiable decisions, or situations.'
I wonder if Curtis believes all the shop owners, downtown, have the right to paint whatever they like on their store fronts. It could turn into a tacky mess very quickly, though I am not saying the octopus was tacky. Just too large for the zoning codes.
Wasn't the $245,000 to cover operating costs? What will be the operating costs of the new libraries? I am guessing it won't be a "bargain".
Here is a reason I just recently learned. Washington State code requires an architect for work on buildings over 4000 S.F. I am not sure just when this kicks in, but certainly on the scope of the school renovations. Our project is much, much smaller in renovation but requires an architect.
So, some group has a good lobbyist to get that cost increase through our legislature.
