LOCAL AND AREA RESIDENTS 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 town hall in Roxbury on Wednesday, Aug. 8, at 7 p.m.
The Aug. 8 meeting is one of seven 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 four “road meetings’’ were held on April 11 in Madison, May 9 in Butler, June 13 in Mine Hill and July 11 in Mount Olive. Subsequent meetings are scheduled for Jefferson, Sept. 12; and Mountain Lakes, Oct. 10.
“The Board of Freeholders takes our meetings on the road so we have the opportunity to meet county residents in the places where they live, work, and go to school. We encourage local and area residents and elected officials to attend a meeting and let us know isssue that you think need to be addressed,’’ said Freeholder Director Doug Cabana.
“It gives us the opportunity to hear issues of local and regional of concern, to allow us to better understand and focus on the needs of county residents,’’ said Deputy Freeholder Director Christine Myers.
The freeholders on Wednesday are scheduled to join Roxbury officials and members of the Roxbury Historic Trust in commemorating the township’s Drakesville Historic Park during the Freeholder Board meeting. Local and county residents also invited to make comments and pose questions to county government officials.
The board of freeholders meet twice monthly, usually on the evening of the second and fourth Wednesday of each month, at the County Administration and Records Building in Morristown.
The public can comment at those meetings. The board also holds public work sessions at 9:30 a.m. on the second Wednesday of each month and at 4:30 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of the month.
Road meeting were held last year in Chester Borough, East Hanover, Hanover Township, Kinnelon, Mendham Borough, Morris Plains, Mount Arlington, and Victory Gardens.
