In November 2021, the Borough of Red Bank voted to establish a Charter Study Commission (CSC). The commission is charged with investigating forms of government that could replace the current Borough form. This commission process is authorized by the state’s Optional Municipal Charter Law of 1950 (OMCL). The CSC may recommend that Red Bank keep the current form, change to a new form or adopt a special charter. After the work of the commission is done and a recommendation is made, the voters of Red Bank will have an opportunity to vote on whether to enact the CSC’ s recommendation at a future election.
