Oceanport Council to Reorganize for New Year
The new year could bring a new council president.
The Oceanport Borough Council will reorganize Tuesday at noon and while no new members are coming onboard, there may be a new council president.
The annual meeting, which will include the swearing in of two returning council members and reappointment of everything from borough attorney to school crossing guards, will take place at Maple Place School.
According to the agenda, a motion will be made to appoint Councilman Joseph Irace as council president, replacing Councilman Gerald Bertekap.
Councilman William Johnson and Bertekap, who ran unopposed for three-year terms in November, will be sworn in at the annual ceremony.
