The City Council Tuesday night authorized $125,000 for materials while the labor will be done by the county, according to City Administrator/Redevelopment Director Peter Pelissier. The work is expected to take a few days. The city will continue to pursue Diversified Communities for almost a half-million dollars in improvements, or reimbursement of the improvements. The Redevelopment Agency declared the Parsippany-based developer in default of its redevelopment agreement last month.
Pelissier said other improvements that Diversified is responsible for, such as drainage, will be done after the complaint is settled.
