Glen Rock December 16, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES II • Page 7 The Glen Rock administration is moving back into Glen Rock Borough Hall this week as the newly renovated building is finally ready to open for business. Several previous dates to move operations from 175 Rock Road back to the Harding Plaza building had to be postponed because of the heavy spring and summer rains and other factors that slowed construction of the two wings of the building on either side of the venerable clock tower, left in place at the request of residents to wanted to save it. The project, at $5.4 million, reportedly came in at budget if somewhat over deadline. Plans to re-open had moved from Labor Day to Thanksgiving, but staffers said late last week that they were told to expect the trucks this week. The long-postponed renovation was made necessary in part due to lack of space, Administration moves back into borough hall and in part due to the fact that parts for heating and air conditioning units had become obsolete and the wiring was deemed inadequate to handle modern needs. Two previous attempts to bond the project were stalled when the amount of money set aside to cover the construction was not adequate due to rising costs of construction in the real estate boom of the late 1990s. No contractor submitted a bid that came in below the maximum amount budgeted, so the two initial constructions were set aside. A volunteer team of engineers and contractors scaled down plans for a much larger renovation when they showed the municipal officials that large commitments of space for storage were not necessary due to electronic storage backed by out-of-state storage of paper documents at leased facilities.
