Arnold, MO – The Arnold City Council cast another vote in favor of union jobs and union construction with the award of a $1.73 million road project to Laborers Local 110 signatory contractor J.M. Marschuetz Construction of Eureka.
The project, awarded Nov. 6, involves the reconstruction of Michigan Ave. between Jeffco Blvd. and Church Road.
Arnold Public Works Director Ed Blattner said the project includes lighting, landscaping and sidewalks. Construction is expected to begin in February.
Arnold, Jefferson County's largest city, has driven more than $210 million in union construction work in recent years.
The Arnold City Council unanimously approved a resolution last summer opposing phony right-to-work legislation in Missouri.
Members from various building trade and other unions crowded into the city council chambers the night of the vote and gave council members a standing ovation.
