available.  If a task to be performed is not subject to one of the
classifications of pay set out, the Department will  upon being
contacted state which neighboring county has such a classification and
provide such rate, such  rate being deemed to exist by reference in
this document.  If no neighboring county rate applies  to the task,
the Department shall undertake a special determination, such special
determination being then  deemed to have existed under this
determination.  If a project requires these, or any classification not
listed,  please contact IDOL at 618/993-7271 for wage rates or
