BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ – Berkeley Heights Mayor Bob Woodruff, and Township Council members Jeanne Kingsley and Michael D’Aquila will participate in the first of three pilot “listening sessions” on Tuesday, October 2 at 8 p.m. at the Berkeley Heights YMCA located at 550 Springfield Avenue.

This event, hosted by The Berkeley Heights Communications Committee (BHCC), will create new opportunities for residents to discuss ideas, ask questions, share concerns and provide feedback to their government representatives in an informal setting. All residents are encouraged to attend. Refreshments will be served.

Pam Yoss, BHCC Secretary, said: “The Communications Committee is piloting this program to give all residents, especially those who are less comfortable in a formal setting, an informal way to raise issues, share concerns, and learn more about what is going on in Berkeley Heights. We’ve modeled this program after one launched in Summit.”

Each of the three pilot sessions will take place on a different day of the week to allow more residents to participate. The next two sessions are tentatively scheduled for Sunday, November 4th at 12:30 p.m. and Thursday, November 29th at 8 p.m. The locations for future sessions will be announced at a later date. Township Council members will rotate through the sessions so the public has access to all Council members before the end of 2018. Susan Poage and Peter Basovo are slated to pair up for next session, and Michelle Greco and Manny Couto will join the Mayor at the third session.
