Brick Township has purchased two additional rear-loading garbage trucks as well as a new score board for the Drum Point Sports Complex.

The two garbage trucks were purchased for $199,750 each for a total contract of $399,500. The winning bidder was Hunter Jersey Peterbilt of Clarksburg.

Councilman Jim Fozman said the trucks cost $80,000 less than the township budgeted in its capital program for the purchase. The rear-loading trucks, unlike the side-loading automated trucks, can be outfitted with snow plows.


The new score board sign will cost $43,372, with the contract for its installation having been awarded to Eastern Sign Tech of Burlington. The bid award provides for the OES Scoreboard model 8605 as well as the dismantling and removal and disposal of the old score board at the complex. It also includes three wireless controllers with cases.

    Good thing Acropolis and the GOP council raised the taxes 25%. The democrats are having a field day spending it and sending out literature about keeping taxes low and fixing parks. This is made possible because of the GOP tax increase. The democrats never rolled the increase back but they sure complained about it.

    The real truth ..not smoke and mirrors …removing positions that didn’t have anyone in them…but were filled by new council by changing promotions to asst .not supervisor…. But pay increase did happen…Parks for one…

    The ball fields at Brick Memorial look like hell. I was just in the Northern area of Newark along the Bloomfield line and I saw ball fields in Newark, both baseball and football that put ours to shame.

      School fields would be renovated through money from the Board of Education, not the mayor and council. The Drum Point Complex is township property, not BOE property. Newark, being designated an “Abbot District”, is essentially given a blank check for spending by the state.
