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 Florham Park, at 111 Ridgedale Ave, on Monday, May 6, at 7 p.m.
It is one of seven county governing board meeting being held outside of the county seat in Morristown in 2019 as part of an effort to bring county government closer to constituents.
The freeholders met in Chester Township on April 10, and will also meet on Wednesday, June 12, Mendham Township; Wednesday, July 10, Wharton; Wednesday, Aug. 14, Washington Township; Wednesday, Sept. 11, Montville; and Monday, Oct. 7, Riverdale.
“The Board of Freeholders supports taking county government on the road to towns like Florham Park so we can meet county residents in the places where they live, work, and go to school. It makes it convenient for those residents and officials to access county government without traveling to the County Seat in Morristown,’’ said Freeholder Director Doug Cabana.
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.
