Essex County Breaks Ground on $8.2M Public Works Facility

Brick 19th century buildings that once housed a county hospital will be replaced with a new state-of-the-art, 40,000-square-foot home for the Essex County Public Works Department, county officials announced this week. “Public Works provides critical support. If they don’t have our vehicles running, then we can’t respond in times of emergency,” Sheriff Armando Fontoura said. Other elected officials on hand to show their support for the project included Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver, NJ State Senator and Essex County Deputy Chief of Staff Teresa Ruiz and Essex County Freeholder Brendan Gill.
