Upper Providence nets $15,000 from selling off used equipment

UPPER PROVIDENCE — The recent sale of used equipment yielded a profit of $15,398 for the township.

At their April 21 work session meeting, the supervisors approved mailing seven invoices prepared following a recent Municibid electronic auction.

Sold to winning bidders from as far away as Tennessee and New York were concrete manhole items, 13 traffic signs and four Chevrolet Impala vehicles equipped with police packages that ranged from 4 to 8 years old.

In other news, the supervisors made their annual resolution to authorize the Black Rock Fire Company to actively engage in firefighting in the township.


Supervisors’ Chairwoman Lisa Mossie acknowledged the board’s attendance at a recent Lower Providence Township meeting where Black Rock Fire Company was honored for heroism and unit commendation for their firefighting efforts in February that saved seven residents of the Audubon Court Apartments.
