Linn County Roadmaster Darrin Lane has been named as one of three new members of the state Prevailing Wage Advisory Committee.
Brad Avakian, the commissioner of labor and industries, announced the appointments Monday.
The other new appointees are Ken Stroup of the Pacific Northwest Regional Council of Carpenters and Steve Malany of P&C Construction Company.
The new members fill vacancies created by the term limits that Avakian established in 2009.
The committee was created by legislative action in 2003, directing the commissioner of the Bureau of Labor and Industries to appoint an equal number of representatives from management and labor in the building and construction industry who perform work on public works contracts.
The committee is charged with advising the commissioner on matters regarding the prevailing wage rate laws that apply to public construction projects.
PWAC’s current co-chairs are Norman Malbin of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 48, and Shawn Miller of the Associated Builders and Contractors and Independent Electrical Contractors of Oregon.
The committee is next scheduled to meet on Thursday, April 19, at the International Union of Operating Engineers Hall in Gladstone .
