    Vernon — Township recreation director Pat Seger and township engineer Lou Kneip have been given the go-ahead to seek bids for a long-awaited new community building to be constructed at Maple Grange Park. The project costs should be covered by a $250,000 grant from the state’s Department of Community Affairs. Plans call for a prefabricated structure, 30 by 60 feet, to be assembled and situated on top of the plateau at the back of the park. It will contain an open eating area, bathrooms and a concession area. The cost of the building itself is estimated to be $45,000. Additional costs will include labor. Water hookup and electric are already on site. According to Kneip, the bid package has room for options to be removed if the price gets too high. They are hoping that the project can be started as early as this summer.
