Council Members to Take Oaths at Red Bank Reorganization

Council members Mike DuPont and Art Murphy will be sworn in to new terms when Red Bank reorganizes for 2013.

The Mayor and Borough Council will hold the annual reorganization meeting at 3 p.m. in the municipal courtroom at Borough Hall, 90 Monmouth St.

Reorganization meetings are traditionally held the first week of the new year and allow the governing body to welcome returning or new members, set temporary budgets, make appointments to volunteer boards and hire or rehire professional staff for the coming year.

Democrats DuPont and Murphy were easily re-elected to their third and fourth terms, respectively, aboard the governing body in the November election. They rejoin incumbents Sharon Lee, Kathleen Horgan, Juanita Lewis and Ed Zipprich, in addition to Mayor Pat Menna.

Additionally, the Borough Council is expected to swear in new Fire Chief Thomas Doremus, who served as first deputy to Chief Josh Sanders in 2012.

A full agenda was not available Monday.

Shrewsbury will reorganize at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 7.
