After failing to receive bids – twice – for a beer and wine concession at Brick Township’s Summerfest and Bricktoberfest events, the township council will consider a measure this week to award a negotiated contract to a township business to run the stand.
The council, which will meet Tuesday, is set to accept a $5,600 contract from Three Boys Corporation, the owner of the Windward Tavern restaurant, to run the concession. Windward Tavern has agreed to all of the township’s specifications for running the concession and has already submitted payment to the township.
The contract will allow Windward Tavern to run the beer and wine concession at Summerfest, which begins July 2, and Bricktoberfest, which takes place Oct. 4.
The beer and wine concession was introduced to Summerfest last year by Mayor John Ducey. For the 2014 season, River Rock Bar and Grill paid $20,225 to the township.
The council will meet Tuesday night at 7 p.m. in the township municipal complex.
