Municipal officials are looking to spend $312,690 for paving and rehabilitation of the neglected basketball court at Buckley Park.
Part of the rehabilitation effort will include installation of new basketball hoops. Pathway in front of the recreation trailer will also be paved, according to councilman Luis Velez, vice chairman of the public works committee.
Municipal officials received two bids for the project ranging from $312,700 to $423,870. Jag Paving Corporation of Kearny, which is likely to receive the contract, was the “lowest responsible bidder,” according to municipal records.
Earlier in the year, the city spent $1.37 million to install an artificial turf field at Buckley Park which is located on the corner of Redwood and Chamberlain Avenue.
