Rick Tomlinson of the Greater Pennsylvania Regional Council of Carpenters asked the Clearfield County commissioners for “all the certified payroll documents” related to the county’s Bionol Ethanol Clearfield Plant. The plant was built with $14 million in state grant funds.
The county denied the request saying they don’t have the records, so they can’t provide them.
If the union (the Regional Council of Carpenters) has the money to sue over this question, I predict they will win. We had a case on a somewhat similar situation in Wisconsin last year, WIREData v. Village of Sussex.
