BEDMINSTER, NJ -- The Bedminster Township Committee passed a resolution earlier this week approving the awarding of a contract to upgrade the Pluckemin School House Park basketball court to Halecon Inc. of Bridgewater.

The contract is for $69,000 and entails the repaving of the court and installation of new hoops and backboards, as well as topsoil and a blacktop pad. Halecon is a construction firm specializing in asphalt paving, excavating, tennis court, running track and all weather sports surface construction.

A pre-construction meeting has been scheduled for next Thursday, and, according to the Township Committee, the project, which could begin by the end of this month, should take no more than two weeks to complete.
