But, the final bid for the park's last remaining item–new bathrooms–could result in the project costs being "almost double," according to Horsham Township Manager Bill Walker.
The governing body recently awarded a $189,500 bid to Centre Point Contracting Inc. for the installation of the new facilities.
"It’s higher only because we had to go out to bid," Walker said.
Originally, the township had secured a Department of Conservation and Natural Resources grant to cover purchasing the restrooms through state contract and allowing the township to hire a plumber and
electrician to do the connection, according to Walker.
Walker said he's hopeful that the state will chip in more money to help cover the additional expense of going to bid. If not, the difference would come from the township's park improvement fund, he said.
With the bid awarded, Walker said the facilities are on order and could take about two months to manufacture.
"This is a winter project," Walker said. "Once spring comes … the restrooms will be there and we’ll be able to open it."
