The committee unanimously approved a contract to order an ambulance from Bay Head Investments Inc. for $164,448.
The new emergency vehicle would replace an ambulance that is 12 years old, said Township Administrator Bruce McArthur. Outfitting the ambulance to meet specifications could take up to a year before arrival, he said.
The committee also voted 4-0 to again hire Renda Roads Inc. for 2012 road repairs in the township. The contractor would fulfill the township's annual road patching program in the township this year, McArthur said.
