The Park District’s assessment is that the Work to be performed pursuant to this Contract is neither the construction nor demolition of public works and therefore the Illinois Prevailing Wage Act does not apply to the Work to be performed pursuant to this Contract. However, nothing in this Notice will be deemed to relieve the successful Bidder of its own obligation, pursuant to the Contract, to ensure that the Work is provided, performed, and completed in accordance with all applicable statutes, ordinances, rules, and regulations and, in furtherance thereof, to make its own determination regarding which laws are applicable to the Work and the Contract. The Park District hereby notifies all bidders that, if the Illinois Prevailing Wage Act applies to the Work, the Contractor must pay not less than the prevailing rate of wages to all laborers, workers and mechanics performing the Work.
The Park District reserves the right to reject any Proposal for failure to comply with all requirements of this Notice or any of the Contract Documents; however, it may waive any minor defects or informalities at its discretion.
No bid shall be withdrawn for a period of 60 days after opening of the bids without the consent of the Park District.
