The governing body has taken the first steps towards purchasing a new street sweeper for the borough and a new vehicle for the police department. 

Council members said earlier this month the current 14-year old sweeper is in need of replacing and after seeking other options including outsourcing the equipment or the service it was found it would be in the best interest to purchase a new one. 

Tuesday night the council introduced a funding ordinance to use $190,000 from its capital improvement fund towards the purchase of the sweeper equipment.

The borough also plans to put aside $40,000 to purchase a four-wheel drive police vehicle using $2,000 from capital improvement fund and bonding for the rest. 

There will be a public hearing on the funding ordinances on Tuesday, Sept. 10.

Great. Maybe we'll see a sweeper on our street more than once a month now.
