Middlebush Park Sound System Bid Awarded

Middlebush Park1

A North Brunswick firm will supply the township with a sound system for Middlebush Park.

A North Brunswick firm was chosen March 8 to provide a sound system for Middlebush Park.

The Township Council awarded the $13,675 contract to Coskey’s TV Radio Sales and Service. Coskey’s was one of three companies to bid on the project.

The system will be primarily used by the township’s Pop Warner football program.

Bids for the project were originally received in January, but the Township Council at the Jan. 12 meeting rejected them because specifications for volume in the football fields’ stands was found to be too low.

The park sound system issue came to a head in 2014, when homeowners adjacent to Middlebush pushed the Township Council to not approve the system, which was requested by the Pop Warner football program. After months of meetings – some of them contentious – a compromise was reached with residents agreeing to a sound system with the volume set to a specific level that would not be able to be heard at their property lines.

Still to be awarded is a bid to provide the park’s concession stand. Initial bids came in over budget, prompting the township to create a new set of specifications that call for a pre-fabricated building.
