Morris County Freeholders to Meet in Netcong on July 22The county governing board will conduct its work session at 5:30 p.m., followed by a 7:30 p.m. regular meeting. Both will be conducted in the Netcong Borough Hall, 23 Maple Avenue. The public is invited to speak at the 7:30 p.m. session.

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 us 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,’’ said Freeholder Director Kathy DeFillippo.

Going into a town also makes it more convenient for those residents as well as for residents of nearby communities to attend a freeholder meeting, meet the freeholders and learn more about Morris County government and the services it offers, said DeFillippo.

The board of freeholders meet twice monthly, with meetings normally held at the County Administration and Records Building in Morristown. For more information on Morris County government, please visit:
