BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Mayor and Township Council celebrated the topping out of the new Berkeley Heights Municipal Complex with a beam signing ceremony on Friday. The "topping out" of the Municipal Complex signifies that the project has reached its maximum height and the structural framework is nearing completion.
Mayor Angie Devanney and Council President Alvaro Medeiros, Council Vice President Susan Poage, Councilmen Peter Bavoso and Manny Couto, Councilwoman Jeanne Kingsley, former Councilman Michael D'Aquila and members of the Epic Management and Mast Construction Services teams all took part in signing the beam that will forever be part of the structure. Councilman Stephen Yellin, who was not in attendance, later signed the beam.
"It's a great team accomplishment to witness the final piece of steel being erect for our Municipal Complex," said Mayor Devanney. "This building will serve as a jewel of our community for generations to come. I applaud my (past and present) colleagues on the Council for their diligence in seeing this project from beginning to truly come to fruition."
With the steel up, the Council can agree this marks substantial progress.
