Special and regular meetings of the Bernards Township Committee meeting on Tuesday

Although a regular meeting of the Bernards Township Committee was already scheduled for this Tuesday night, May 23, the township also announced late last week that for the same night, another special meeting has been scheduled to discuss legal aspects of lawsuits stemming from the Township Planning Board's denial of plans for a mosque in Liberty Corner Village.

Another joint meeting of the Bernards Township Committee and the Bernards Planning Board has been scheduled to discuss the lawsuits. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. next Tuesday, May 23, less than two weeks after the same township officials failed to reach an agreement on whether to settle the lawsuits with the Islamic Society of Basking Ridge and the federal Department of Justice, which allege that religious discrimination was the basis for the denial.

Tuesday's meeting is scheduled to be held in the main meeting room at the Bernards Township Municipal Building, 1 Collyer Lane, Basking Ridge.

The Township Committee and Planning Board are scheduled to open the joint meeting, and then - as they had on May 10 - to adjourn into a closed-door legal discussion regarding the pending lawsuits and the insurance company handling the case for the township.

As of the weekend, the regular Township Committee meeting also is scheduled for Tuesday night, to begin in the same location following the regular meeting. The agenda is on the township website.
