RED BANK, NJ: The Red Bank borough council will hold an online workshop meeting tonight, Wednesday, March 3, 6:30pm.
These workshop sessions have the borough’s department heads discuss upcoming ordinances/resolutions and other matters relating to Administration, Finance, Police, Engineering and Emergency Management and any other pertinent matters.
The Workshop Meeting sets up the agenda and discussions for the next regular council meeting, scheduled for Wednesday, March 10.
Highlights of agenda include:
Appointments for the Broadwalk committee. Closing 2 blocks of Broad Street to vehicular traffic, Broadwalk provided outdoor dining and a retail plaza in the center of its downtown. It first started on weekends and then ultimately went 24/7. It was critical to the survival of many of these businesses.

Councilman Michael Ballard will bring up council meeting protocols on the public interaction with the council.
In January 2019, the council approved a protocol policy with rules that the public and council must follow. Specific rules include that all questions be directed to the mayor. Members of the council will not be allowed to engage in dialogue or debate with the speaker. Questions will be addressed after all public comments are heard, or, at the next scheduled council meeting. To read the protocol policy, click HERE and scroll down.
