The Morris County Board of Freeholders has added two more towns to its destinations for “road meetings’’ in 2019, announcing stops in Florham Park and Wharton.
The county governing board last month announced it would continue its tradition of holding county government “road meetings’’ in towns across the county in 2019, with the board to meet in seven different municipalities from April through October as part of a continuing effort to bring county government closer to constituents.
The first “road meeting’’ will be held on Wednesday, April 10, 7 p.m., in Chester Township, at the Chester Township Municipal Building at 1 Parker Road.
Subsequent road meetings will be held from May through October. Scheduled so far are Freeholder Board meetings on May 6 in Florham Park, June 12 in Mendham Township, July 10 in Wharton, and Aug. 14 in Washington Township. Two more road meetings will be announced in the near future.
“The Board of Freeholders likes taking county government meetings on the road, to towns like Florham Park and Wharton, to meet county residents in the places where they live, work, and go to school. It makes it convenient for residents and officials to have access to county government without having to come to the County Seat in Morristown,’’ said Freeholder Director Doug Cabana.
“These meetings give our residents and local officials an opportunity to raise regional issues of concern to the board, so we can better understand and focus on their specific needs and concerns,’’ said Deputy Freeholder Director Heather Darling.
The freeholders last year met in Butler, Jefferson, Madison, Mine Hill, Mount Olive, Mountain Lakes and Roxbury.
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 on the mornings or afternoons of the second and fourth Wednesday.
