A $434,160 contract has been awarded to install a synthetic turf field at Westwood Park.

Last week, the Town Board voted unanimously to award the contract to Greenauer Blacktop of West Seneca. The company had the lowest of five bids submitted.

Town officials hope to install the field at the Pavement Road park to expand recreational playing fields and for the soccer league’s use.

In other news, the town’s Planning Board recently tabled Niagara Lutheran Health Care Systems’ site plan for a corporate office building at Greenfield, 5959 Broadway.
