just_in1A string of shootings on the West Side, including one Monday night, has prompted Red Bank officials to schedule a community meeting for Tuesday night.

From an announcement sent out by the borough at noontime Tuesday:

Mayor Pasquale Menna and Police Commissioner Arthur Murphy have scheduled a Community Meeting for 7pm tonight, Tuesday, December 23, 2014 in the Council Chamber/Courtroom on the first floor of the Municipal Building at 90 Monmouth Street to address concerns about a recent incident on West Westside Avenue.  Police Chief Darren McConnell will be available to address the situation.

We understand this is a busy week for many people but we felt the residents would want an opportunity to get more information and to express their concerns as quickly as possible.  Many people have asked for this type of outreach after a previous incident and we felt we should act quickly to help alleviate concerns.
