Ridgewood has retained one contractor to perform upcoming repair work at three separate locations in town.
Playground equipment at Habernickel Park in Ridgewood was damaged during Hurricane Sandy.
The Village Council last week awarded three different contracts for varying amounts to undo some of the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy at the Kasschau Band Shell, Habernickel Park and the Salem Lane Pump House.
Elmwood Park-based J&J Handyman has been tapped to complete the three projects, which have a cumulative cost of more than $24,000.
More than half the total bill will fund repairs at the pump station, which contains pump controls for Ridgewood’s water utility and its water pollution control operation. A tree felled by Sandy’s winds caused what Ridgewood deemed “significant roof damage.”
