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.
