Repairing the Rec Center, Elmwood Park fields

ball fields update

In 2020, stormy weather resulted in a tree falling into the Elmwood Park pavilion, and then a major flood destroyed the park's ball fields and  damaged the Norristown Recreation center. Claims were filed with our insurance for these capital assets and money was paid out from our insurance provider to make the repairs.


There are five separate projects addressing the flood damage covered by Insurance are all have been advertised in the Times Herald. The bids went live on PennBid.net in early February. The sites were available to potential contractors for pre-bid meetings in early February. All these projects will be under the $350,000 Responsible Contractor Ordinance (RCO) requirements, so the apprenticeship requirements of the RCO will not be required. All of the other requirements of the RCO will still be stipulated.

Below is a summary of the projects and the associated dates and times through to completion. (Feb. 17 update- four contracts were awarded by council on Feb. 16 and are listed on the respective projects.)
