In 1908, the people of the West Long Branch section of Eatontown became unhappy with paying taxes to Eatontown and not getting what they thought was a fair return. A request was made that the West Long Branch section be separated from Eatontown. The Township of Eatontown strongly resisted since there were several large estates in the West Long Branch section that were a source of considerable taxes.
The Freeholders authorized an election and on May 5, 1908 the election was held in West Long Branch. The results as recorded in the Advertiser, an Eatontown newspaper, were: 163 for and 73 against separation. On Tuesday, June 16, 1908, the West Long Branch section of Eatontown Township became the independent Borough of West Long Branch.
