CALDWELL, NJ – After much deliberation on Tuesday night, the Caldwell Borough Council authorized the borough engineer to go out to bid to repair the parking deck near the community center without exceeding $100,000.

Councilman Thomas O’Donnell stated that the town cannot afford to lose the second-story parking lot for a year, a sentiment also echoed by Councilman Richard Hauser.

According to Glenn Beckmeyer, borough engineer, the sectioned-off area, which is about 400 feet, can cost between $45,000 and $50,000 to repair.

“The abutment part can cost between $25,000 and $30,000,” Beckmeyer said. “This will give the council some time to decide what to do in the future with the parking deck.”

Also discussed was the public safety aspect of the deck. Councilman Pasquale Capozzoli suggested that fencing be placed around the area where debris may fall.

“I see fencing all the time when there is construction going on,” he said.

In other news, the council suggested to Borough Administrator Paul Carelli that he hire a professional independent company to determine and supply a written proposal to meet the borough’s needs for a new generator. This company would also be responsible for maintaining the generator.

“If we do this, it acts as an insurance policy if the size is incorrect or doesn’t work properly,” Borough Attorney Greg Mascera said.

During the meeting, the mayor and council presented a proclamation to Sister Fran Sullivan, Head of School for Mount Saint Dominic, in recognition of the school’s 125th anniversary.

“We hope to be around another 125 years,” Sullivan said.

The next meeting is scheduled for Nov. 21 at 7 p.m.
