The bond ordinance authorizes the issuance of $6.184 million in bonds and notes to finance a portion of the costs. Jackson officials will provide a $325,450 down payment to cover the balance of the appropriation.

The improvements authorized by the bond ordinance will consist of the acquisition of a new radio system for the township, including, but not limited to, the construction of two radio towers with radio equipment shelters and emergency generators; the acquisition of infrastructure equipment for an existing third radio tower site; and the purchase of more than 300 mobile and portable radios.
