Finance Committee Holds Public Hearing & Vote on Responsible Contracting Proposal


The Portland City Council’s Finance Committee will hold a public hearing and is expected to vote on Mayor Strimling’s responsible contracting proposal at 5:30 PM on Monday, February 11, 2019 in the Council Chambers. The Mayor is proposing an amendment to strengthen the City’s purchasing policy. 

It would:

  •  Require the payment of prevailing wages for building contracts that are funded by municipal funds,
  • Require contractors who are awarded a municipally funded construction project to participate in a registered apprenticeship/job training program, and 

  • Require contractors to provide safety training and to have a clean record on wage, labor, and safety violations. 

Each of these proposals will be taken up individually. The Mayor’s memo with full proposal details can be found here.

The Finance Committee agenda with full backup material can be found here.
