Page 10 THE VILLADOM TIMES IV • September 16, 2009 Ramsey Contract award anticipated at special session Last month, 15 contractors responded to Ramsey’s request for bids on the renovation of the borough’s public library. Since the bid opening, the proposals have been under the review of an architect, who will provide the council with a final report. At press time, the borough had scheduled a special council session for early this week (Monday, Sept. 14). Officials said they expected the contract to be awarded at that meeting. The following contractors provided bids on the library renovation: AARK, $2,532,200; H&S Construction & Mechanical, $2,686,400; Niram, Inc., $2,710,700; GPC, $2,719,000; Riefolo Construction, $2,851,900; Verticon, $2,873,416; T.M. Brennan Contractors, $2,898,200; APS, $2,917,000; DiCarolis Associates, $2,990,615; Onekey, $3,020,715; Walter H. Poppe, $3,165,061; Catcord Construction, $3,296,300; Fourmen Construction, $3,411,334; Kario Construction, $3,563,204; and McCann Acoustics, $4,186,862. Funding will be provided by a $4,250,000 bond ordinance. Renovations will be made to the building’s existing 14,000 square foot interior. No addition is planned, however, the library will be reconfigured for greater efficiency. Plans call for the replacement of all the windows and doors, and the heating and air conditioning system. Both library entrances will be reconfigured to meet at a central circulation desk, and a glass enclosed reading room will highlight the Wyckoff Avenue view. The program room will be updated, opening directly into the children’s area for easy access to story times and crafts. Restrooms will be expanded to meet all ADA requirements. Five new officers (continued from page 3) for PriceWaterhouseCoopers.

All five officers graduated from the Law & Public Safety Institute in Mahwah in December 2008. Chief Gurney previously stated that these officers represent the best of the field of candidates who were available for the five positions that became available when five officers retired from the department last year. The retirees included Patrolman Matthew Mistretta, Sergeant Francis Alcaro, Sergeant Kevin Kelly, Lietuenant Mark Delhauer, and Lieutenant Robert Rapp. Mistretta, Alcaro, and Kelly had each served the department for 25 years.
