Wednesday night’s meeting of Red Bank’s charter review commission focused on the forms of government available should the commission recommend a change from the “borough” structure in place since 1908.

The session, conducted via Zoom, centered on a return appearance from municipal government specialist Edward Sasdelli of the state Department of Community Affairs, who detailed the various municipal forms available under New Jersey’s Faulkner law.

Sasdelli also addressed the commission on January 18.

“Choosing the right form of government is important,” he said Wednesday, “but it’s no substitute for hiring the right people and electing the right people. You can have the best form of government, but if you don’t have the right people there, it won’t work.

Here are the slides from Sasdelli’s latest presentation: Red Bank Alternate Forms of Gov’t 040622

The video of the session is available on the commission’s Facebook page and will be posted on its YouTube channel.

The commission’s next session is scheduled for Tuesday, April 19, when it expects to hear from Julia Sass Rubin of Rutgers University’s Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy.
