It’s been more than a year since employees and officials moved into Rumson’s pristine new borough hall on East River Road, but there are still a few punch-list items needed to close the book on the project.
Among them: a runner to protect the wood of a staircase leading from the lobby to the second floor. Meantime, strips of blue painter’s tape warn visitors not to go upstairs.
But the off-limits treatments have led some residents to wonder just what’s up there, and may be fueling rumors that Mayor John Ekdahl’s office is a lavish one, complete with wet bar, Viking stove and working fireplace.
