Franklin Lakes June 3, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES I • Page 5 Facelift planned for borough’s municipal building by Frank J.

One was for $32,000 in connection with the construction of a proposed restroom facility for the municipal fields behind the municipal building, and the second was for $118,820 for improvements at the municipal building and the recreation center. A resolution recently passed by the council indicates that the council wants to transfer the $32,000 grant to the municipal building and recreation center project.

That action will result in a total of $150,320 that will be available for the municipal building and recreation center projects. Franklin Lakes Borough Engineer Kevin Boswell advised the council at its last public meeting that the only cost to the borough for the municipal building and recreation center will be $18,000 for professional services.
