The Morris County Freeholders continue to take some of their regular public meetings on the road.

The freeholders will be in Kinnelon on Sept. 24 to conduct the board’s public
meeting in the Kinnelon Municipal Building, 130 Kinnelon Rd., at 7:30 p.m.

Travelling meetings have been held in 38 of the 39 towns in the county since the practice began in 2007, and by the end of the year, each of the towns will have been visited.

“Leaving Morristown, the county seat, and going on the road gives the freeholders the chance to meet face-to-face and to exchange ideas with local officials and to seek their input on the various issues that affect their towns,” said Freeholder Director William Chegwidden.

It also makes it more convenient for residents of those towns and nearby communities to attend a freeholder meeting, he said.

“It’s an occasion for citizens to meet the freeholders and to learn more about Morris County government and the services it offers,” Chegwidden said.

The freeholders have been in Mine Hill, Riverdale and Hanover this year, and they plan to conduct a public meeting in Wharton in November.
