Earle main gate improvements contract update

According to the Veterans Today Network (about halfway down the linked page), P&S Construction Inc. of Massachusetts won a bid, valued at nearly $6.3 million, for main-gate enhancements at NWS Earle's primary entrance on Rt. 34 in Colts Neck. The improvements evidently will be made by October 2011. We will see if we can find out more about this over the weekend, as federal government documents initially put the contract budget at slightly more than $8 million.

Again, we note that this contract is not directly related to the Laurelwood civilian housing situation, but shows the utter hypocracy of spending millions of dollars on improving the main gate to keep people out of NWS Earle, while at the same time a few hundred meters south the Department of Navy is so eager to rip a hole open in the fence to provide unimpeded access through the base to unvetted civilians...all for the sake of getting out of a bad 1980s-era housing contract.

NOPE will continue to expose this hypocracy and eagerly awaits an announcement from the DoN within the next 40 or so days, pertaining to a buyout or some other compromise on the Laurelwood privatized housing contract.
