STAFFORD – The municipal building’s parking lot will be repaved, with officials stating that they want to get it done now before it gets any worse.

The Township Council passed a resolution allowing business administrator James Moran to award the project to a bidder. Normally, the council does this. However, this was at the Aug. 15 meeting, and the council wasn’t scheduled to meet again until Sept. 12. They authorized him to award the contract to the lowest, reasonable bidder.
