The former township municipal building, one of many locales of township offices until the municipal complex was built in the late 1980s, is likely to be torn down. It features a couple of rusting pieces of road department equipment out front.
Township officials voted Sept. 9 to spend up to $35,000 to remediate and demolish the old municipal building on East Mountain Road. The building is in front of the current public works yard.

Township Administrator Anthony Ferrera said Tuesday that building is subject to flooding and generally isn’t sound. In addition, a recent state health inspection found asbestos tiles in the foyer, not surprising for a building of its day.
