A $1.1 million Green Acres grant will cover most of a $1.4 million reconstruction of Seidler Field.
The City Council previously approved a contract for Pennoni Associates to provide engineering services for the project. A contract with Your Way Construction of Irvington is now up for council consideration Tuesday and, if moved to the agenda, approval at the June 19 regular meeting.
Tuesday's meeting is 7:30 p.m. in City Hall Library, 515 Watchung Ave. The regular meeting is 8 p.m. June 19 in Municipal Court, 325 Watchung Ave.
According to the resolution, the upgrades will
include a synthetic turf, new LED lighting, bleachers, scoreboard and interior fencing. The City received a
grant award of $1,100,000.00 from Green Acres for the project. Two city accounts of $63,000.00 and $217,628.79 will provide the balance of the $1,380,628.79 cost of the project.
The Seidler Field site in the city's East End includes a pool and fields used by Pop Warner football teams.
