The Vernon Township council approved a bond ordinance at worth just more than $2 million.

The ordinance was introduced on at the June 9 meeting regarding the issuance of bonds for maintenance, road repairs, and various purchases for municipal and emergency vehicle improvements.

The police and fire departments are in need of new gear, such as rifle mounts for patrol cars and turnout gear for the fire department. Purchases include; a new street sweeper for the DPW, along with four new utility vehicles for the police and a new scoreboard installed at Maple Grange Park. Two ambulances are in need of retrofitting for chassis and the Municipal Building is in need of renovations. Among these purchases and repairs, the township must also use some of the funds for its obligation to the Sussex County Municipal Utilities Authority and the Vernon Township MUA.

No members of the public came forward to discuss the ordinance before it was adopted.
