A years-overdue cellphone tower contemplated for the Sea Bright municipal parking lot will now probably go elsewhere.
The borough council, acting under the threat of unilateral action on the siting issue from Verizon, authorized telecom consultant Declan O’Scanlon to work with the phone giant to get the tower approved and built on the ocean side of borough hall Tuesday night.
Like Kelly, Fisher made beachfront development a top campaign priority.

Earlier this month, redbankgreen emailed questionnaires to local candidates for public office in towns with contested elections on November 2. We began running the replies last Friday, starting with those from Middletown, where four candidates are vying for two seats on the five-member Township Committee.
We continue today with Sea Bright, where four candidates are seeking two spots on the borough council. The replies are arranged below in alphabetical order. No reply was received from Peggy Bills, an incumbent Republican.
