The St. Charles County Council has adopted an ordinance letting building inspectors check for illegal aliens on any construction project using one-million dollars or more in tax exempt bonds. The ordinance also requires contractors and subcontractors to pay prevailing wages. The County Industrial Development Authority, which issues the bonds, objects to the prevailing wage requirement. The County Council says it will eliminate a subsidy it gives to the authority staff if the authority doesn’t agree to the ordinance.
