Brick officials are scheduled to vote Tuesday night on the township’s annual capital improvement program, which will consist of $8,075,000 in bonding.

The council will sell bonds that will come due in five, seven, 10 and 15 years, according to a copy of the proposed bond ordinances. If approved, approximately $3.7 million of the funding will go toward various road improvements, $566,019 will go toward the acquisition and installation of data processing and technology equipment for township departments and $59,736 will go toward curb, sidewalk and concrete improvements.

Another $3.6 million will fund building and grounds improvements, recreational parks improvements at existing parks and beaches and drainage improvements in various areas of the township.

    Pay it out of your budget.

    This is exactly what Scarpelli, McFadden and did during the felon Scarpellis administration. …..instead of raising taxes they borrow to pay for everything. They do this for 2 or 3 years and then they would cut taxes the year that Scarpelli runs for re-election. ……..Seems like Ducey is governing by the Scarpelli playbook.

    What id the total township debt? What was it when Scarpelli took office and what is it now?

    Lawyers and bankers and insurers make a lot of money selling township bonds.
    This is how pay to play works now. Borrow money and use for mostly unneeded make work projects.
    Politically connected Lawyers, engineers, contractors and bankers get their campaign money back 100 times over.

    I like how only 59 thousand goes to the roads and curbs. What building improvements are we doing…Please list these. What is the 3.6 million going to be spent on.

    9 million dollar surplus, but then borrow 9 million to spend. I bet there will be a big tax cut the year that Ducey runs for re-election. Any takers?
