MANASQUAN — The borough council Monday adopted an ordinance increasing funding for the prospective acquisition of Sullivan’s Services Center at the intersection of Main, South and Broad streets.
This brings the borough one step closer to its eventual goal of making traffic flow improvements at the three-way intersection, in conjunction with Monmouth County.
This ordinance, first introduced at the Oct. 16 council meeting, is an amendment to an ordinance introduced in July and increases the allotted amount from $700,000 to $840,000.
Officials say the increase is needed due to additional environmental studies required as part of the acquisition process.
During a special meeting on Oct. 30, the council approved two resolutions allowing the borough to hire engineering company Vanasse Hangen Brustlin to perform a site investigation, one of the required environmental studies, and authorizing Mayor Edward Donovan to sign the company’s proposal for that investigation.
