The Illinois Prevailing Wage Act (820 ILCS 130/0.01 et. seq.) requires the Village to establish the prevailing rate of wages for laborers, mechanics and other workers employed in performing public works projects for the Village. The Act also contains administrative and record keeping requirements that the Village and its contractors are mandated to strictly follow. The Village requires that on projects which require a prevailing wage, copies of all Certified Transcript of Payroll be submitted prior to an invoice being paid.
