Purchases worth $53,950 and a number of professional and service contracts were awarded by the Township Council at the March 11 meeting.

The council approved the $44,000 purchase of technical support for land development software from Spatial Data Logic of Somerset through Feb. 28, 2015. The software is used by a number of township departments, including building, land use, code enforcement, assessor, engineering, fire prevention, health, water, police and DPW.
