Local and Area Resident Invited to Attend

The Morris County Board of Freeholders, as part of a continuing tradition of holding county government “road meetings’’ in towns across the county, will meet at the municipal building in Mine Hill on Wednesday, June 13, at 7 p.m.Morris County Freeholder Board to meet in Mine Hill on June 13

It is one of six county governing board meeting being held outside of the county seat in Morristown in 2018 as part of an effort to bring county government closer to constituents.

The first two “road meetings’’ were held on April 11 in Madison and May 9 in Butler. Subsequent meetings are scheduled for Roxbury, Aug. 8; Jefferson, Sept. 12; and Mountain Lakes, Oct. 10.

“The Board of Freeholders really enjoys taking our meetings on the road to meet county residents in the places where they live, work, and go to school. It also makes it more convenient for residents and elected officials to have access to county government without having to come to the County Seat in Morristown,’’ said Freeholder Director Doug Cabana.

“These meetings also give local residents and officials an opportunity to raise regional issues of concern to the freeholders, so we can better understand and focus on their needs and concerns,’’ said Deputy Freeholder Director Christine Myers.

The public can comment at those meetings. The board also holds public work sessions at 9:30 a.m. on the second Tuesday of each month and at 4:30 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of the month.
