In late 2022 the OBVTA Board of Directors was presented with a request to investigate the feasibility of Ortley Beach succeeding from Toms River. The BOD took this request very seriously and, led by Board Secretary John Clarke, an intensive review of this possibility was started.

Over several months there were many discussions with current and past participants, attorneys and experts who have considered similar actions in nearby municipalities. Research was completed into the legal and financial resources that are required, many by law, to complete a succession.

John Clarke and the OBVTA board has now provided the Members of OBVTA with a clear and detailed response to the feasibility of succession. We appreciate your patience as we wanted to take the time to give the report a proper review.

At the link below you will find a brief summary of the findings as well as a complete detailed report.
