BERNARDS TWP., NJ _ The Bernards Township Committee is due to meet at 8 p.m. next Tuesday, Dec. 10 _ but the governing body isn't sure yet whether to hold the last meeting of the year, now scheduled for Monday, Dec. 23.
Either this Tuesday's or the Dec. 23 meeting also will be the last full meeting that Mayor Carol Bianchi will preside over.
Bianchi, who declined to seek re-election, is leaving the Township Committee. Republican Janice Field, who won election in November, will be sworn into her spot at January's reorganization meeting.
Under the Township Committee's usual meeting schedule, the second meeting for December would have fallen on Christmas Eve., Dec. 24.
That meeting has already been officially rescheduled for Monday of that week, but is on the Dec. 10 meeting agenda for further discussion on whether it will be held, said Rhonda Pisano, Bernards Township Clerk. She said it may be decided at that time to cancel the Dec. 23 meeting.
This week's agenda includes approval for closing the center of Basking Ridge to allow the Community Holiday Sing on Dec. 24, 2019, and recognition of service to the township.
The agenda also includes approval of the completed Manchester Drive and Juniper Way Improvements, and also improving the Goltra Drive and Fairview Drive East reconstruction project that has been completed.
Bernards Township Committee meetings are held in the main meeting room at the municipal building at 1 Collyer Lane in Basking Ridge.
