First Session Set for Long Hill on April 6
The Morris County Board of Freeholders will continue its tradition of holding county government “road meetings’’ in towns across the county in 2020, with the board to meet at seven different locations from April through October.
The first of the road meetings will be held on Monday, April 6, 7 p.m., in Long Hill Township, at the municipal building at 915 Valley Road in Gillette.
Subsequent meetings scheduled by the freeholders include Chatham Borough, Sept. 9; Lincoln Park, June 10; Parsippany, Oct. 14; Rockaway Borough, Aug. 12; and Rockaway Township, May 13. One more road 2020 meeting soon will be scheduled.
“This is part of a continuing effort by the Board of Freeholders to bring county government closer to our constituents, making it more convenient for them to have access to county government without having to come to the County Seat in Morristown,’’ said Freeholder Director Deborah Smith.
“These on-the-road sessions give local and area residents and 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 Stephen Smith.
The freeholders last year met in Chester Township, Florham Park, Mendham Township, Wharton, Washington Township, Montville, and Riverdale.
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.
