Brehm also explained where there is Federal money involved, the main contractor usually does not do all the work on a project but sublets part of it.
Brehm said he has been asked many times why local contractors are not given the subcontracting jobs, however, it is illegal for him to recommend any local contractors. Therefore, it is up to the main contractor to pick who his company uses for subcontracting.
Brehm said the county will be doing some work in Highland Township south of Dunham farms in the very near future.
Claims approved for payment for the past week totaled $70,506
