Phase II of Bond Work Underway

During the summer weeks, contractors have been hard at work rolling out Phase II of Babylon’s bond initiative, after completing Phase I this past winter.
   
Most notably, construction has begun on the installation of the turf fields across from the Junior/Senior High School. Additionally, the building is in the process of undergoing a roof replacement.
