HUNTERDON COUNTY, NJ - Freeholder Director Shaun C. Van Doren opened a dialogue with his colleagues on the board Sept. 15 about returning to in-person meetings at the county’s 71 Main Street complex.

A decision was made by the board to return to its in-person meetings in downtown Flemington for the very next freeholders meeting, set for Oct. 6, with public session to start at 5:30 p.m.

The venue will be the Historic Hunterdon County Courthouse (71 Main Street Building 3), where the board usually holds its January reorganization meeting, instead of in the second floor meeting room adjacent to county offices.
