Morris County , NJ-The Morris County Board of Freeholders will continue its tradition of holding county government “road meetings’’ in towns across the county in 2018, with the board to meet in seven different municipalities from April through October as part of a continuing effort to bring county government closer to constituents.
The first “road meeting’’ will be held on Wednesday, April 11, 7 p.m., in Madison, at the Hartley Dodge Memorial Building on 50 Kings Road.
Subsequent meetings will be held on the evenings of Monday, May 7 in Butler; Wednesday, June 13 in Mine Hill; and Wednesday July 11 in Mountain Lakes. Three more road meetings have been tentatively scheduled for August, September and October, and will be announced in the near future.
“The Board of Freeholders really enjoys taking our meetings on the road to meet county residents in the places where they live, work, and go to school. It also makes it more convenient for residents and elected officials to have access to county government without having to come to the County Seat in Morristown,’’ said Freeholder Director Doug Cabana.
“These meetings also give local residents and officials an opportunity to raise regional issues of concern to the freeholders, so we can better understand and focus on their needs and concerns,’’ said Deputy Freeholder Director Christine Myers.
The freeholders last year met in Chester Borough, East Hanover, Hanover Township, Kinnelon, Mendham Borough, Morris Plains, Mount Arlington, and Victory Gardens.
The board of freeholders meet twice monthly, usually on the evening of the second and fourth Wednesday of each month, at the County Administration and Records Building in Morristown.
The public can comment at those meetings. The board also holds public work sessions on the mornings of the second and fourth Wednesdays.
