The Morris County Board of Freeholders will hold its next meeting on Wednesday evening, Sept. 27, in Mendham Borough as part of the board’s eight-stop 2017 “road meeting” schedule.
This will be the couty governing board’s first meeting in the borough since Sept. 16, 2011.
The freeholders said they hope the meeting makes it more convenient for borough residents to attend. They also are inviting residents of nearby towns, including the Chesters, Mendham Township, and Washington Township, to attend the meeting, ask questions about county issues, and to learn more about their county government.
Moving freeholder board meetings out of the county seat in Morristown to the county’s 39 municipalities is part of the board’s continuing effort to bring county government closer to their constituents.
The county government road meetings for the rest of 2017, all to be held in town halls or community centers and starting at 7 p.m., include:
• Sept. 27, Mendham Borough, Garabrant Center, 4 Wilson St, Mendham
• Oct. 25, Hanover Township, 1000 Route 10, Whippany
• Nov. 20, Mount Arlington, 419 Howard Blvd., Mount Arlington
