The top two people at the Red Bank Parks & Recreation Department, whose names were curiously absent from the borough council reappointments list on Jan. 1, have gotten the seal of approval to remain in their positions.
Director Bob Evans and Assistant Director Tomora Young were reappointed by the council last week, following an oral report by Councilman John Curley on efforts to address issues raised by a recent audit of the department.
Citing personnel policies, borough officials are still rather vague about what the holdup was.
But redbankgreen has learned that the audit, completed in October, turned up some bookkeeping mismanagement issues in the department.
There was no suggestion of any type of malfeasance, Curley said.
“There were difficult problems of accounting procedures, and that’s about all I can say,” Curley told redbankgreen.
