Mr. Foley, a Republican submitted his resignation to the borough on April 4 and will remain as an official councilman until April 30. Since there will be no second council meeting in April, Wednesday’s meeting was officially his last.

“It’s been seven-and-a-half almost eight years that I’ve been on council and it’s basically becoming a second full-time job,” Mr. Foley said. Since this is his “volunteer job,” Mr. Foley said he decided to step down to spend more time with his family.

According to Borough Administrator Lorraine Carafa, the Republican Committee in Sea Girt will now present three candidates to the borough council for consideration for appointment. The council will then decide who will fill Mr. Foley’s seat.

Mr. Foley was in the second year of a three-year council seat.
