Itasca County’s transportation department has 14 projects planned for 2018. Tuesday, the Itasca County Board split in its decision to NOT use Project Labor Agreements for those projects. Not all projects need to use a PLA, according to County Engineer Karin Grandia. There are specific conditions to use a PLA on a project. During the last meeting, commissioners heard some discussion about PLAs. Commissioners passed the agenda item on a 3-2 vote, Commissioners Trunt and DeNucci dissenting. Commissioners agreed that discussion should continue.
