The Morris County Freeholders held their bi-monthly meeting in Netcong on Wednesday, July 22, as part of a regular series of “road meetings’’ held by the county governing board in all 39 Morris County towns.

At the meeting, held at the borough hall, Morris County Freeholder Director Kathy DeFillippo presented a resolution to Netcong Mayor James Nametko and Councilman Robert Hathaway.

“We appreciate the longstanding spirit of cooperation between the freeholders, county government and Netcong,’’ said DeFillippo.

“Netcong, of course, is the home of Cissy Laureys, who long served with great dedication as a Morris County freeholder, as well as a Netcong Councilwoman. Her efforts will be long remembered.’’

We thank you for allowing us to take over your town hall for an afternoon and evening, to help bring county government closer to the people of your community.’’

Besides Netcong, the freeholders have committed to conduct road meetings later this year in Boonton Township, Aug. 26; Rockaway Borough, Sept. 21; Lincoln Park, Oct. 28; and Florham Park, Nov. 23. They have held meetings previously this year in Chatham Township, Harding, and Morristown.

Travelling meetings have been held in all 39 towns in Morris County since the practice began in 2007.

These meetings give the freeholders an opportunity to meet people and officials from throughout the county on their own turf, to hear their local and regional concerns, and get a better understanding of what is important to their towns and communities.

The board of freeholders also meets on the first Wednesday of each month at the County Administration and Records Building in Morristown.
