Three Freehold Borough roads will receive needed drainage improvements thanks to the passing of a new resolution.
At the Monday Freehold Borough Council meeting, a resolution was unanimously passed to have Earle Asphalt Company perform needed construction on Bowne Avenue, Barkalow Avenue, and Brentwood Avenue.
According to the resolution, various drainage improvements will be made to the three roads for a total cost of $202,713.13. Originally, the town's engineer estimated that the construction work would cost $175,852. Three companies originally placed bids on the work in August, Earle proposed the least expensive bid and was awarded the job.
The money for the construction will come out of the General Capitol Fund. The resolution did not state when the construction would commence.
