SEA ISLE CITY – Sea Isle City Council passed several “housekeeping” resolutions, Dec. 27, including three authorizing the purchase of several vehicles and equipment for Public Works. Resolution 255 authorized the purchase of two, 2022 Ford F-150 pick-up trucks (year unspecified) from Gentilini Ford in Woodbine, for an approximate cost of $116,402.60 for the two trucks. Resolution 256 authorized the purchase of a 2022 Ford F-250 XL Utility Body Work Truck” for $51,565.29, and a 2022 Ford F-250 Dump Truck with plow package for $116,420.68, also from Gentilini Ford.
At the meeting, Mayor Leonard Desiderio said these types of resolutions are usually routine in nature but in this case, time was of the essence to get them passed.
“These vehicles and equipment will replace that which is deteriorated and old and we funded their purchase earlier in the year through bond ordinances. It’s important, though, that we move quickly to purchase them now because the dealer has them available and we need to take advantage of that. Because of supply chain issues over the last couple of years, delays have been experienced affecting prompt delivery times,” Desiderio said.
