Board going ‘on the road’ to six municipalities this year

FREEHOLD, NJ – The Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders has established the remainder of its 2012 meeting schedule with regular evening meetings to be in Atlantic Highlands, Englishtown, Howell, Little Silver, Middletown and Neptune.  

“The Board of Chosen Freeholders takes its meetings on the road to make county government more accessible to the people it serves,” Freeholder Director John P. Curley said. “It encourages participation by many more residents.” 

The Board of Chosen Freeholders meet on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month. Generally, workshop meetings are held at 2 p.m. with all regular meetings held at 7 p.m. in the Hall of Records in Freehold. Evening meetings on the fourth Thursdays of the month beginning in March through August will be rotated throughout the county as was done in the past. Workshop meetings on those travel days will be held in Freehold at 1 p.m. 

According to Marion Masnick, clerk to the Board of Chosen Freeholders, the meeting rotation is designed to cover all regions of the county and provide opportunities for residents to attend meetings closer to home or work.  
The complete list of 2012 Freeholder meeting dates is available on the Monmouth County Web site at www.visitmonmouth.com.  A schedule of meeting dates and locations:
