SADDLE BROOK, N.J — Saddle Brook officials made some progress on several ongoing projects in the township as the year comes to a close.

About a dozen security cameras were recently installed at Veterans Field and are fully operational, Mayor Robert White said.

Renovations at the Saddle Brook Department of Public Works building's roof also started in early December and are nearly complete.

The DPW's salt shed should see improvements soon, as the township awarded a contract and ordered materials, White said. Construction should begin in six to eight weeks, he continued.

The Township Council awarded a contract to OCA Architects of Newark to create architectural plans for new concession stands and bathrooms at Veterans Field, White said.

The township may extend its lightning detection system but it has not been decided yet, the mayor said. New locations could include Smith, Long, Franklin and Washington schools, Avon Park, 5th Street Park and Victor Little League Field.

The system operates by radio signals sent from the base system to the remote locations for sounding the alarms, White said.

Finally, Saddle Brook will soon go out to bid on drainage upgrades to Fifth Street, the mayor said.
