In other business, the council members authorized the purchase of a diesel pneumatic tire lift truck in an amount not to exceed $40,571. The tire lift truck was also purchased for the DPW. The vehicle was purchased from Tri-Lift, North Brunswick.

Finally, the Eatontown council members passed a resolution reimbursing borough employees for fingerprinting costs.

According to the resolution, certain borough employees are required to be fingerprinted. The employees pay outside companies for the service because the Eatontown Police Department is only permitted to provide fingerprint services under certain circumstances, which do not include a pre-employment background check.

The payments made by borough employees to the outside companies will be reimbursed.
