Another great week of progress was made in the construction of our new municipal complex. The building will house our administration offices, recreation space, library, police station and space for our seniors. On Tuesday at our next Council meeting, we will discuss placing solar canopies in the commuter parking lot that will save approximately $25,000 in year one and about $1.5 million in utility costs over the life of the project. The canopies will also help to protect cars against snow, rain and sun. For the week ending October 25, 2019 at the Berkeley Heights Municipal Complex project site, please read on to learn about this week’s progress. 

All the best,

Mayor Angie Devanney
