Center On Friday Over Expired Permit
FRANTIC FRIDAY: In Newark, Jeffery Mays reported New Jersey Judge Paul Vichness Friday "reinstated a temporary certificate of occupancy that allowed the Prudential Center to reopen after it was closed ... by a Newark construction code official." Vichness extended the certificate until August 25. The city has until July 21 to file a response, and a hearing is scheduled for August 8. The "completion of a smoke evacuation system to help clear the stairwells in the event of a fire is the subject of the dispute." But Devils co-Owner Michael Gilfillan said, "It's safe. It's just technicalities, paperwork, bureaucracy and miscommunication" (Newark STAR-LEDGER, 7/12).
