POINT PLEASANT BEACH — An ordinance creating a special improvement district within the municipality was approved by a 4 to 1 vote. Councilwoman Rosa Crowley was not in attendance to vote.

The vote to adopt ordinance 2022-16 came after an information session was held on Monday night for the purpose of the public to learn more about it and voice their opinions on it.
Experts from around the state from municipalities both large and small presented fact based and data driven information and took questions to answer any misconceptions about the SID, said Mayor Paul Kanitra before the vote was taken.
