BATH TWP.: Bath Police Department will be getting four new vehicles as part of the regular rotation of cruisers within that department.



Trustees on Tuesday approved the purchase of two Ford Police Interceptor sport utility vehicles from Montrose Ford at a cost of $26,109.71 each, as well as one Ford Taurus police car at a cost of $24,158.59.



In addition, the department purchased a 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan SE from Fred Martin Superstore for $20,748.50.

All vehicles were planned replacements for current vehicles, and all were within the state bid price, Chief Mike McNeely said.



Trustees also accepted the recommendation of Service Director Caine Collins for the third cycle of work by JG3 Consulting to reinspect and rate all of the roads in the township, update the road inventory, upgrade the micropaver software and provide pavement condition analysis reports and projections at a cost of $11,210.



“This gives us a good picture of road conditions and helps us plan for pavement preservation,” Collins said.
