The Brick Township council voted this week to purchase three new dump trucks which can be outfitted with snow plows, officials said.

The dump trucks cost $157,828 each, for a total of $473,484, said Council President Paul Mummolo. The trucks, 2016 model single-axle trucks with a stainless steel, hydraulically-driven dump body, will be outfitted with a pre-wetting system and come with plows that can be attached.

The trucks will be purchased from Maurice Schwartz and Sons, of Shrewsbury, Monmouth County.

“This will be more cost effective in the long run,” said Councilman Jim Fozman, since fewer contractors will be needed to plow snow.

The contract with Schwartz requires that the trucks be delivered to the township within six months.
