Five Things You Need to Know ... Tonight's Council Meeting
Tonight's is the final Township Council meeting in 2012.
Here are five things you should know about tonight's Gloucester Township Council meeting:
1. Council is scheduled to vote on an ordinance that would update requirements for repairs made to any roadway impacted by contractors.
Among other things, the ordinance would require contractors to use 10 inches of compacted gravel in all areas impacted by the work and two inches of approved bituminous temporary patch material in "paved cartways" as temporary paving.
The temporary paving would remain for no less than 90 days and no more than 120 days before being replaced with permanent paving meeting New Jersey Department of Transportation specifications under the proposed ordinance.
The ordinance is to be considered on first reading at the Dec. 27 meeting.
2. Council is scheduled to accept bids for the restoration of the roof and remediation of bats at Glendora's historic Gabreil Daveis Tavern.
The low bid, received last Thursday, was submitted by Masonry Preservation Group. The $65,000 bid was $2,300 less than that of Nickels Contracting Inc. and $34,325 less than DA Nolt Inc.'s.
3. Council is also slated to accept bids regarding imminent work on another historic property during the Dec. 27 meeting.
Nickels Contracting Inc. submitted the low bid for the stablization of Robert Marshall House, which is also known as Moffa's Farm House, in Blackwood.
Its $35,000 bid came in $17,700 less than Masonry Preservation Group's.
4. A proclamation to be signed by Mayor David Mayer and Council President Glen Bianchini making the week of Feb. 2, 2013, Paint the Town Purple Week in Gloucester Township will be read into the record during the meeting.
