South Brunswick (NJ) residents recently approved via special election the purchase of a $1.95 million apparatus for Fire District 2, which covers the Monmouth Junction, Dayton, and Deans portions of the township, reports tapinto.net.
The recommended purchase is a Pierce 100-foot mid-mount aerial tower ladder.
More than $1 million will come from existing funds while the remainder will come from lease-purchase financing, the report says. The purchase will not result in any tax increase for South Brunswick residents.
The apparatus, which will take about 16 months to build, will replace an aging tower ladder that has incurred more than $66,000 in repairs since 2004, including almost $18,000 last year alone, according to the report.
