The assembly voted Feb. 17 to give a two-year contract to manage Garden City RV Park and Pullen Creek RV Park to JBW at $88,000 per year. According to Borough Manager Brad Ryan, the contract fell through.

“…This has been a bit of a roller coaster,” Ryan said. “…the low, low bidder and us couldn’t get all the paperwork in order to complete that contract, and by code within seven days if that doesn’t happen, we go to the next lowest bidder.”

The next lowest bidder was Heger Construction, LLC at $126,700 annually. Janilyn Heger’s name was on the bid form with no subcontractors listed. The assembly voted unanimously to award a one-year contract.

“I look forward to the Hegers running a good RV park this summer,” said Assemblymember Orion Hanson. “I know they will. Janilyn is taskmaster, if you’ve ever met her, dealt with her – she runs a tight ship. And her husband is a very talented guy. I’m looking forward to a good season.”

The contract runs April 15, 2022 to April 14, 2023, with the Hegers responsible for bookings throughout the off-season.
