The Township Committee unanimously approved a bond ordinance authorizing the purchase of a new pumper fire engine, reports TAP Into Springfield.

The funds include $800,000 for original apparatus and equipment. The oldest current truck in the fleet was destroyed during the flooding from Tropical Storm Ida.

The township had $155,000 set aside to finance a new truck eventually, but a replacement was needed sooner than the township had expected. The vehicle will be ordered in November and will take about a year to arrive.
