Mountain Lakes logoThe Morris County Board of Freeholders, as part of a continuing tradition of holding county government “road meetings’’ in towns across the county, will meet in Mountain Lakes on Wednesday, Oct. 10, at 7 p.m., at the Borough Hall, located at 400 Boulevard, in Mountain Lakes.

At the meeting, the county will present a historic marker to representatives of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Mountain Lakes for their historic preservation project at the church.

This is the last of seven county governing board meetings 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 six “road meetings’’ were held April 11 in Madison, May 9 in Butler, June 13 in Mine Hill, July 11 in Mount Olive, Aug. 8 in Roxbury, and Sept. 12 in Jefferson Township.

“We have really enjoyed taking our meetings to various towns across the county, which has given us opportunities for face-to-face meetings with mayors and local governing council or committee members, and to have a chance to meet county residents in their home towns,’’ said Freeholder Director Doug Cabana.

“It has given us an opportunity to hear first-hand from local residents about issues of local and county concern,’’ said Deputy Freeholder Director Christine Myers.

The Freeholders met in Jefferson Township on Sept. 12.

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 meetings were held last year in Chester Borough, East Hanover, Hanover Township, Kinnelon, Mendham Borough, Morris Plains, Mount Arlington, and Victory Gardens.
