An ordinance that established a prevailing wage for City and County of Denver contractors has not seen any significant change in more than a half century, other than a process to exclude violators from doing city work projects that has not banned a single company.
That is likely to change, with the city council's Finance and Governance Committee recent recommendation that the full council approve several changes to the ordinance that were guided by Denver Auditor Timothy O'Brien.
