NEW HVAC SYSTEM FOR MUNICIPAL BUILDING

Council also appointed Tower Engineering as engineering consultant to design a replacement HVAC system for the municipal building. Township Manager Michael Silvestri said the building was originally built in 1964 and last renovated in 1987. 

He says the HVAC system has reached the end of its useful life. Tower Engineering submitted a bid of $77,250 to design and replace the HVAC system, as well as replace the emergency generator. Silvestri said the new generator will allow the building to be used as an operations base during emergencies or when power outages occur.

NO METAL SPIKES, PLEASE

Council also discussed whether to allow the  cross country team and their competitors to use spikes when they start their races on the new artificial turf on Field 5.

The turf warranty bans the use of metal spikes which the team uses. Council approved the school athletic department's idea to use ceramic spikes instead and to supply the spikes for its competitors to use when they visit Peters.
