Mayor Andre Sayegh’s administration is spending $1.15 million to renovate the Putnam Oval baseball field on Lafayette Street.
Municipal officials are spending $872,095 for purchase and installation of a new synthetic turf field and $287,900 for a new lighting system. It will include five poles-led lighting with a light control system.
Montville-based Athletic Fields of America was awarded the $872,095 contract to handle installation of the new turf. Iowa-based Musco Lighting was awarded the $287,900 for the new lights and control system.
Both contracts were awarded earlier in the week.
It’s not clear when work will start or finish.
