BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The Bridgewater Township Council unanimously passed a handful of resolutions dealing with change orders regarding sewer projects and overtime for code officials at its Dec. 18 meeting.

The council authorized two change orders, the first being an increase of almost 19 percent, or $12,290, from the original contract amount, to A&A Curbing, Inc. for the Woodlawn Avenue Sidewalk and Rambler Drive Curb Ramp improvements. The cost, which rose from $64,703 to $76,993, was funded through the township’s 2017 Sidewalk Capital Improvement Fund.

The second change order was a decrease of 7.13 percent, or $101,747, from the original contract amount to Interstate Contracting & Excavating, LLC, for the Woodside Lane Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation and Restoration Project. The cost, which was funded through the township’s 2015 Capital Sewer Fund, decreased from $1,427,494 to $1,325,746.

Another resolution authorized the payment of non-standard overtime to the plumbing, mechanical, building, electrical and fire subcode officials, which will be paid by applicants to the municipal code official through March 17 of next year.

Township administrator James Naples said the measure will relieve pressure on code officials, who are currently involved with several major projects and are generally not eligible to receive overtime. The resolution will involve roughly $6,000 for some five officials, and will relieve a backlog of inspections.

“It will move plans through in a timely manner,” he said.

The council also voted unanimously to authorize execution of an amendment to a financial agreement with Centerbridge II Senior Housing and Urban Renewal Associates, LLP, that had originally been executed around Dec. 1, 1992. It provides for a P.I.L.O.T., or Payment In Lieu Of Taxes, for a project located at 491 Shasta Drive, in Bridgewater.
