Morris County Freeholders Coming to Kinnelon
Governing body will continue visits to local communities with public meeting in borough next week.
The Morris County Freeholders will continue their annual tour through some of the county's municipalities with a meeting in Kinnelon next week.
The freeholders will hold ther Monday, Sept. 24 public meeting at the Kinnelon Municipal Building at 7:30 p.m.
The freeholders began in 2007 moving some of their yearly meetings to municipalities throughout the county. The governing body has held meetings in 38 of the county's 39 municipalities and will have visted each community by the end of this year, according to a statement released Monday.
"Leaving Morristown, the county seat, and going on the road gives the freeholders the chance to meet face-to-face and to exchange ideas with local officials and to seek their input on the various issues that affect their towns,” Freeholder Director William Chegwidden said in the statement.
The freeholders, who have visited Mine Hill, Riverdale and Hanover already this year and will hold a November meeting in Wharton, feel the tour makes it more convenient for residents of those towns and nearby communities to have their voice heard.
“It’s an occasion for citizens to meet the freeholders and to learn more about Morris County government and the services it offers,” Chegwidden said.
