It was just announced that a special meeting of the Common Council has been called for Monday, April 5, at 5:00 p.m., "to consider a resolution to accept a bid and a major contribution to cover the overage on the bid related to the Promenade Hill Park Project."
Gossips has learned that the "major contribution" is $600,000 from the Galvan Foundation. The bid to be accepted is undoubtedly the lowest bid for the project, which was submitted by A. Colarusso and Sons. Click here to join the Zoom meeting.
Correction and Update: I have been informed that the contribution to be considered is from the H. Van Ameringen Foundation not the Galvan Foundation. The contribution is to honor the late Henry van Ameringen. The amount of the contribution is $650,000. My source also told me, "Once awarded the contract Paul Colarusso has indicated they could contribute the shortfall which is around 100 thousand dollars."
