Brentwood Council awarded $1.6 million worth of contracts during a special meeting Tuesday night for the first two phases of the $8 million Brentwood Park renovation.

Council voted 6-0 to accept a bid of $529,651 from Vento Landscaping and Construction of Highland Park and another of nearly $1.1 million from Vasco Sports Contractors of Massillon, Ohio, for the first two phases of the project which will include a six-lane 400-meter track and turf field for the stadium, a standard-size dek hockey rink, one tennis court, one basketball court and two baseball fields.

Councilman Clyde Zimmerman was absent.

“I'm excited to get things going,” said borough Manager George Zboyovsky after the vote.

Additional phases are to include renovations to the swimming pool, civic center and construction of a playground and pavilions.

Groundbreaking for the first two phases of the project is scheduled at 10 a.m. May 3.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
