Rumson’s future borough hall may be ready for occupancy as early as June 1, Mayor John Ekdahl tells the today’s Asbury Park Press after the town council authorized the purchase of $124,000 worth of desks, chairs and other furniture last night.

“We could move in about June 1,” Ekdahl says. “Maybe.”

From the article:

Administrator Thomas S. Rogers said exterior work on the $7.9 million project is about 75 percent complete, a statistic borne out by bricks covering about three quarters of the building’s exterior. About a month ago, the new building exterior was sheathed in yellow insulating material.

Work is being done to finish electrical work inside the new structure, Rogers said. Furniture — such as desks, chairs, filing cabinets and tables — was ordered to provide suppliers with enough lead time, he said. Electronic equipment, such as computer printers and copiers, will be moved over from Memorial Hall.
