The Morris County Freeholders will be in Netcong on Aug. 25 as they continue their practice of taking some of their meetings on the road.

The freeholders will conduct their regular public meeting in the Netcong Borough Hall, 23 Maple Ave., starting at 7:30 p.m.

“We started taking some of our meetings to various municipalities across the county about three years ago,” said Freeholder Director Gene Feyl. “Going on the road, from town to town has enabled us to meet and exchange ideas with local officials. It’s also made it easier for residents of the towns we visit to attend one of our meetings and let us know what’s on their minds.”

Feyl said the freeholders hope that by meeting in Netcong, it will make it more convenient for residents of that community as well as surrounding towns to attend the meeting and learn more about their county government.

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