OCEAN CITY — City Council unanimously approved a resolution on Thursday, April 10, to allow the city to spend $143,278 on six new vehicles from Rodeo Ford in Goodyear, Az. to replace vehicles damaged in Hurricane Sandy. They include three Ford Focus hatchbacks, two Ford Escapes and a Chevrolet Express Van.

Also approved by council vote are the purchase of a hot asphalt patcher worth $32,524 and spending $180,979 on new street sweeper, as well as two secondhand pieces of equipment, a salt spreader from Sea Isle City for $1, and used fire skid unit from Egg Harbor Township for $10,000. The city has two surplus military units the firefighters use in emergencies. The skid, a pump and 250 gallon tank, would be bolted on to one of the units to allow for firefighting in difficult to reach areas, according to information presented to City Council members. It would be about half the cost of a new one.
