MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - The state has ordered a contractor to pay $13,600 in civil penalties because it failed to pay prevailing wages for work done on a southern Oregon elementary school.

Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries says Hard Rock Concrete of Redmond is also ineligible for public works contracts during the next three years.

According to the Medford Mail Tribune (https://is.gd/xsyYMm ), the agency found Hard Rock Concrete failed to pay seven contractors $8,911.02 while working as a subcontractor on a public works project for Hillside Elementary School in White City. The company also filed inaccurate certified payroll reports.

An agency spokesman says workers were paid the balance of the prevailing wage by general contractor Kirby Nagelhout Construction Co., of Bend.
