Gov. Kim Guadagno for new three-year terms. New county Sheriff James Gannon also will be sworn in by Guadagno

The reorganization meeting is slated to take place at 7 p.m., in the public meeting room of the county’s Administration and Records Building at 10 Court St. in Morristown

At the session, Morris County Freeholder Cabana will officially take over as freeholder director, replacing DeFillippo, who is stepping down after two years as director. Morris County Freeholder Deborah Smith, a Denville resident, will also be at the session as well as fellow freeholders Hank Lyon of Montville and Christine Myers of Mendham.

Public parking for the event is available in the Schuyler Place garage, one block from the county administration building, and in nearby public lots on Cattano Avenue. There is also street parking in the vicinity.

Cabana is the longest serving member of the board, having joined in 1997. He is a former freeholder director, elected to the position by fellow board members in 2000 and 2001. Cabana served as deputy director in 1998, 1999, 2011 and 2012.

"A past president of the New Jersey Association of Counties, it was under his leadership in 2006 that the association became an initial driving force behind the now popular concept of 'shared services,' said a statement from the county. "Cabana will continue in 2016 as Morris County’s representative to that statewide association, a role he has held since 1999."

Cabana, a lawyer, was mayor of Boonton for six years and a member of the township’s governing body for 11 years.
