The contractor in charge of the Glen Rock High School fields project has violated borough ordinance by starting work too early in the morning, according to a resident cited in a recent Glen Rock Gazette report.
The local paper reports Cornwall Avenue resident Lawrence Lipman claims to have witnessed Turco Golf Inc. performing heavy construction work before 8 a.m. on weekdays and before 9 a.m. on weekends, breaking borough noise/construction code.
District Business Administrator Michael Rinderknecht, according to the report, told the contractor of the alleged work time violations and provided Turco's direct contact information.
The bulk of the $4.2 million project – which includes a new track, turf fields and drainage systems – has been completed, albeit a month late and at a significantly greater anticipated cost.
The football team plays for the first time at home on Saturday against Rutherford, Homecoming Weekend. There will be an informal presentation on the opening of the multipurpose field.
The lower soccer field is scheduled to open in late October or early November.
