Morris County Freeholder Director Gene F. Feyl was elected First Vice Chairman of the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority at the agency’s Jan. 11 board of trustees meeting.

The NJTPA oversees regional transportation planning and annually authorizes more than a billion dollars in federal surface transportation funding for 13 counties in northern and central New Jersey.

“Wise investment in transportation is integral to maintaining our quality of life in Morris County,” Feyl said. “In this position, I will continue to provide guidance for federal transportation investment in the county and the greater region.

Feyl became a member of the NJTPA Board of Trustees in 2007. The Executive Committee provides guidance and leadership to the full board on a wide range of planning, policy and administrative issues. It meets as needed to review financial, personnel and policy matters. Feyl joined the Executive Committee in 2008 and currently serves as Vice-Chairman of the NJTPA’s Project Prioritization Committee.
