Monmouth County, N.J., held a groundbreaking ceremony for its new heavy equipment maintenance building at the county’s public works complex in the Township of Freehold.
The new building will be used to repair and maintain highway vehicles, construction equipment, and other vehicles in the county fleet, along with municipal vehicles covered through the county’s shared services program.
“This new building will help Monmouth County Public Works staff perform the necessary labor on the county’s fleet of vehicles, which are being deployed for an increasing work load due to our Shared Services programs,” said Freeholder Director Thomas Arnone. “We are grateful to everyone who has assisted in the development of this project — and look forward to utilizing the building when completed.”
Construction is slated to be completed Summer 2019. The new facility will include two five-ton bi-directional overhead cranes, a lube oil waste storage room, a tool crib, a tire storage room, and personnel space.
