The following resolutions were passed:

09-173 A Resolution Supporting Equality and Civil Rights for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Americans.

Councilman Ed Zipprich sponsored this item. He told redbankgreen that he thought it important that the borough be on record as supporting gay rights.

09-186 A Resolution Requesting Approval of the Director of the Division of Local Government Services to Establish a Dedicated Trust by Rider for the Red Bank Human Relations Committee in Accordance with N.J.S.A. 40A:5-29.

This change, if approved, would allow the Human Relations Committee to fund programs through the sale of t-shirts. Like other committees and commissions other than the borough Shade Tree Commission, this one gets no money from the borough government.

09-188 A Resolution Authorizing Preparation of Bid Specifications and Receipt of Bids related to demolition of the Sunset Avenue Incinerator

Councilmembers Michael DuPont and Art Murphy were absent.
