HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - Hasbrouck Heights Council President Ron Kistner did nothing to hide his displeasure with the fact that the Henry Street paving project, (Route 17 to Terrace Avenue) approved in the spring, had not yet been completed. He let Evan Jacobs of Neglia Engineering know quite clearly that he was "disappointed" at Tuesday night's Council meeting that the project had not been completed, a project he reminded Jacobs had been a "priority" to get done since it was passed.
Jacobs indicated that there had been some scheduling delays with the contractor, as well as the bad weather.
Kistner, nor the rest of the Council was sympathetic. Suggestions of contractual remedies, including fines that are normally built into these contracts for non-timely performance, were discussed.
Jacobs stated that he would once again speak with the President of the construction company, whom he had been in contact with earlier in the day, to stress the importance of getting the project completed.
Milling is scheduled for Friday, December 13, while paving is set for Monday, December 16, weather permitting, Kistner told TAPinto Wednesday night.
Milling and paving had original be scheduled for the week after Thanksgiving, as announced at the November 26 Council meeting. But a slow moving post-Thanksgiving winter storm postponed those plans.
