The Town of Hyde Park hereby establishes a policy to promote apprenticeship training as authorized by § 816-b of the New York State Labor Law.
As used in this chapter, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:
CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT
Any contract for the erection, construction, reconstruction or alteration of buildings that requires separate specifications pursuant to General Municipal Law § 101 (commonly known as the "Wicks Law") to which the Town of Hyde Park is a signatory.
[Amended 12-12-2011 by L.L. No. 5-2011]
CONTRACTOR OR SUBCONTRACTOR
A contractor or subcontractor which directly employs labor under a construction contract for which an apprenticeship program has been approved by the New York State Commissioner of Labor in accordance with Article 23 of the New York State Labor Law.
A. 
The Town of Hyde Park hereby requires any contractor, prior to entering into a construction contract with the Town of Hyde Park, or any subcontractor entering into a contract with a contractor who has a construction contract with the Town of Hyde Park, to have apprenticeship agreements appropriate for the type and scope of work to be performed, which have been registered with, and approved by, the New York State Commissioner of Labor in accordance with Article 23 of the New York State Labor Law, anything in § 103 of the New York General Municipal Law to the contrary notwithstanding.
B. 
Contracts involving maintenance work, custodial services, any work upon leased facilities, professional services, engineering/architectural services, equipment purchases and federally funded contracts are exempt from the provisions of this chapter.
[Amended 12-12-2011 by L.L. No. 5-2011]
C. 
If a specific trade required for performance of a contract or project does not have a New York State Department-of-Labor-approved apprenticeship training program at the time of the award of a construction contract, such contract is not subject to the provisions of this chapter.
[Added 12-12-2011 by L.L. No. 5-2011]
D. 
If a single bid is received for a construction contract subject to this chapter from a contractor that does not maintain an approved apprenticeship training program, the Town may elect, in its sole discretion, to award said contract to the single bidder rather than rebidding the construction contract.
[Added 12-12-2011 by L.L. No. 5-2011]
E. 
Notwithstanding anything in this chapter to the contrary, at its discretion the Town Board reserves the right to accept any bid, in whole or in part, or reject all bids and readvertise in the manner outlined by §§ 101 and 103 of the General Municipal Law.
[Added 12-12-2011 by L.L. No. 5-2011]
The Town Purchasing Department, subject to the approval of the Supervisor, is hereby authorized, empowered and directed to promulgate such rules and regulations that are lawful, necessary and appropriate for the implementation and enforcement of any provisions of this chapter.
This chapter shall apply to construction contracts advertised for bids on or after the effective date hereof.
