The Morris County Freeholders will conduct their Sept. 22 regular public meeting in the Morristown Town Hall, 200 South St., starting at 7:30 p.m.

Moving the meeting out of the county Administration and Records Building continues the freeholders’ practice of taking some of their meetings on the road.

“We started meeting in various municipalities across the county about three years ago,” said Freeholder Director Gene Feyl. “While we realize we won’t be on the road as much as we will be up the street for this meeting, we also understand that some people may feel more comfortable attending a meeting in their own town hall rather than in a county facility.”

Going from town to town with the public meetings has enabled the freeholders to meet and exchange ideas with residents and local officials, Feyl said.

The freeholders have been in Netcong, Rockaway Borough, Lincoln Park, Florham Park and Mount Arlington this year, and they plan to conduct other public meetings in Boonton Township and Butler before the end of the year.
