BEDMINSTER, NJ — The Bedminster Township Committee this week adopted an ordinance to approve $158,637 for the Capital Road Management Plan in the township.

The plan, which was adopted Monday night, calls for the reconstruction, repair and mitigation of roads, drainage and stormwater systems on various roads in the township.

Any money received from grants for the purposes described in the ordinance is to be applied to direct payment of the cost of the improvements to reduce the amount  authorized from the capital improvement fund to the extent that such funds are so used. The period of  usefulness is five years or more.

The $158,637 represents new money, but money left over from 2018 and 2019 that will go toward this project brings the total to $450,000.

"Oakura (Lane) is one of the worst roads in Bedminster, so it's about time that that road got repaved," Bedminster Mayor Larry Jacobs said Monday night. "This is opportunte and this is timely."

Bedminster's capital budget has been amended to conform with the provisions of the ordinance.
