The Borough of Bernardsville, having been awarded a grant from the Somerset County Historic Preservation Grant Program to carry out historic preservation at the Dunster-Squibb House property located at 189 Mine Brook Road, Bernardsville will be seeking formal bid proposals from pre-qualified contractors to carry out the approved scope of work consistent with the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties. Because Pre-Qualification of bidders is permitted under the New Jersey Local Public Contracts Law N.J.S.A 40A:11-1 et seq., and N.J.S.A 40A:11-25, and because the Dunster-Squibb House is a historic property and the scope of work for this project is of a highly specialized nature due to the historic preservation needs of this building, only contractors qualified and experienced in historic preservation projects should be permitted to receive bid documents and submit proposals. Pre-qualification of contractors will ensure that the lowest responsible bidder has the requisite experience and capabilities to successfully complete the project according to specifications. Statutory requirements hold that a municipality desiring to pre-qualify prospective bidders must adopt Pre-Qualification Regulations, after first conducting a public hearing pertaining to the decision to pre-qualify prospective bidders.  In accordance with procedures set forth in N.J.S.A 40A:11-1et seq., and N.J.S.A 40A:11-25, there will be a public hearing regarding the adoption of qualification regulations on Monday, August 8, 2016, at 7:00 p.m., at the Borough Hall Council Chambers, 166 Mine Brook Road, Bernardsville, New Jersey 07924.
