The Morris County Board of Freeholders will hold a special 2019 public county budget input meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 15, from 6:30-to-8 p.m. at the county government complex in Morristown.
The session is designed to let county residents and mayors and other public officials from all 39 Morris County municipalities have a say in the budget-making process, to state concerns, make recommendations, and ask questions of the freeholders’ budget committee, and its financial and senior staff.
Freeholders Heather Darling, Kathy DeFillippo, and Deborah Smith, who comprise the committee, will be joined by the county’s professional staff at the session.
“We want to ensure that mayors, other elected officials, and county residents have an opportunity to comment on budget issues, to provide insight into how we develop the budget, and our timeline for introduction,’’ said Deputy Freeholder Director Darling, who chairs the committee. “We invite interested officials and residents to attend,’’ she added.
