WE HAVE A NEW MAYOR…
Which is to say that the Red Bank borough’s official website is finally catching up to reality.
Eight weeks after he was sworn in, Pasquale Menna’s name is now listed on the site in the place where Ed McKenna’s name still stood as recently as Monday afternoon. Michael DuPont is listed as a councilman. And there’s a calendar for the year 2007.
OK, so the calendar doesn’t yet list council meetings scheduled for coming months. But borough officials, and particularly the Demoratic majority, say they’re working on putting more data on the site in an effort to meet a campaign promise for more “transparent” government.
Eventually, the site will include agendas of the council as well as planning and zoning board applications, texts of resolutions and ordinances, and the minutes of prior meetings, said Borough Administrator Stanely Sickels.
