Policy Questions for Council Consideration:
The West Linn Baseball Association (WLBA) through fundraising efforts and donations of materials and services has offered to provide artificial turf infields for the two baseball fields at Fields Bridge Park at a taxpayer cost savings approaching $160,000. Previously, the City Council pledged $90,000 towards this project. To move forward, an exemption to the Local Contracting Rules is necessary. This project will comply with the BOLI wage and hour rules.
