As residents continue cleanup efforts in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the Township Committee will conduct a special emergency meeting at 7 p.m. tonight in Room 108 of town hall to discuss and vote on storm relief efforts.
Among the discussion items will be a resolution declaring an emergency and authorizing emergency procurement of goods and services required to mitigate damage throughout the township caused by Hurricane Sandy. The governing body will also vote to authorize an emergency appropriation of funds.
Officials are also expected to approve resolutions that will allow the township clerk to advertise for bids for various necessary projects and repairs related to storm damage from the recent disaster.
The projects include the reconstruction of the sanitary sewer main from the intersection of Centennial Avenue and South Avenue and between Lincoln Park East and the Rahway River as well as the reconstruction of the Keith Jeffries Avenue and Orchard Street storm sewer; the repair/reconstruction of South Avenue sewer lining from South Union Avenue to the Rahway River Bridge.
