New security protocols in place for Phillipsburg town council meetings

PHILLIPSBURG, NJ (Warren County) – There will be new security protocols in place beginning with next weeks Phillipsburg Town Council meeting.

Everyone attending will be subject to a screening for weapons and/or contraband. These protective measures are in place to ensure the safety of all those in attendance.
