Township officials and professionals working on the town hall project are heading back to the drawing board to find out what went wrong after bids for the project came in over budget.
Council passed a resolution at last night’s meeting rejecting all bids in connections with the town hall and library municipal complex.
Representatives form Greyhawk Construction, the construction consultants managing the project, said the township received 10 bids for the project and all of them came in over the $15 million the township is willing to spend. The lowest bid came in at about $15.6 and the average bid for the project was about $17 million.
Officials have asked Greyhawk to look back at the project to see where project planning went wrong before any decisions are made about putting the project back out to bid and before a timeline is established. Mayor Dan Roccato asked representatives form Greyhawk for a written analysis by this Friday.
Council is scheduled to meet for an executive session on May 17. Officials may decide to hold some public discussion about the town hall project at that time.
