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.
