I am writing in response to your request for this Office's written opinion regarding the applicability of the Massachusetts Prevailing Wage Law, M.G.L. c. 149, §§26-27H. Specifically, you have asked if the prevailing wage law applies to a project to paint the exterior of the XXXX Town Hall. The project will require exterior treatment and removal of old paint, surface preparation, and re-painting.
Please be advised that the Massachusetts Prevailing Wage Law, M.G.L. c. 149, §§26-27, applies to such a project.
I hope this information has been helpful. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.
Lisa C. Price
Deputy General Counsel
