Susan,

When the vehicle titles were transferred from District 1 to District 2, the NJDMV paperwork to transfer the titles was filled out at DMV, they did not provide a copies. The paperwork was then processed, and they issued the new titles. Copies of the vehicle titles with the signatures were not made prior to transfer from District 1 to District 2 at the DMV.

Attached are copies of the requested truck titles after the transfer of ownership was completed, with the exception of the 1989 Ford Brush Truck, as this truck was no longer owned by District 1 at the time of dissolution. The titles for the three trucks that were sold by District 2, have the signatures at the time they were signed to over to the buyer included.

Susan,

I may have missed part of your request. The signature on the titles transferring them from District 1 to District 2 as the owner/seller was Mayor Zappariello.

Dear Minotola Fire Commissioners,

Please confirm that all of the vehicle titles listed in the attachment you provided (both vehicles sold and those still in your possession) were titled in the name of Commissioners of District #1 at the time you had the titles transferred to Commissioners of District #2.
