RARITAN TWP., N.J. – The Raritan Township Committee has approved a contract to install electric vehicle charging stations for electric vehicles.
The installation is made possible through a $30,000 grant from the state Department of Environmental Protection.
The contract was awarded to Case Electric, of Baptistown, which bid $28,995 for the project.
Two dual port stations will be installed at the municipal building, with one similar station to be set up at Lenape Park.
Under the terms of the grant, the township has nine months to install the stations. Work is expected to be completed in May.
The contract for the charging stations was among several awarded by the committee.
The committee also passed a resolution awarding a contract to Top Line Construction Corp. to resurface Case Boulevard, from Voorhees Corner Road to Reaville Road.
The resolution now goes to the Department of Transportation for review, with work expected to begin sometime in April.
In addition, an ordinance to formally change the name of Millbrook Place to Burry Lane was introduced.
The public hearing for the name change is scheduled for the committee’s next meeting March 3.
Residents of the currently named Millbrook Place requested the change to avoid confusion with nearby Millbrook Road.
In other business, the committee recognized David Snyder for 32 years of service to the township Department of Public Works.
The proclamation read by Mayor Jeff Kuhl noted Snyder “has provided outstanding public service and demonstrated exemplary performance throughout his career.”
Kuhl also noted that he has known Snyder for 45 years, going back to when they shared the school bus together.
