Surf City Awards Contract for Well Work, Part of Hazard Mitigation Project

Oct 17, 2018

The Surf City Borough Council earlier this month approved a $128,000 contract to Level I Construction for work associated with the 2018 Hazard Mitigation Grant project. Five bids were received for the project, which encompasses the borough’s Number 7 well generator. All of the bids were received by Borough Engineer Frank Little and Borough Attorney Christopher J. Connors. Both recommended awarding the bid to Level I Construction.

Hazard mitigation is defined as any continued action taken to lessen or negate the long-term risk to life and property from hazard events. It’s an evolving process existing before, during and after disasters. It serves to break the cycle of damage and repair in hazardous areas.

In other news, Councilman James Russell, acting on behalf of the council and borough lifeguards, accepted a donation of more than $2,100 from the Surf City Taxpayer Association earmarked toward the purchase of two AED units for the beach patrol next summer.

“This is a very special gift,” Russell told Jean Daniels, who presented the donation. “This is a lifesaver. It’s really appreciated. Thank you so much.” —G.G.S.
