BEDMINSTER, NJ -- The Bedminster Township Committee last week approved the appointment of Stephen Davis as the prosecutor of the shared municipal court of Bedminster, Peapack-Gladstone and Bernardsville.

The interim appointment of Davis, the Managing Partner of DiFrancesco Bateman Law Firm, is effective through the final day of 2019.

Miles Winder III, the previous municipal prosecutor, moved earlier this fall.

The current Shared Municipal Court is held on Tuesday beginning at approximately 10 a.m. until all cases are heard (approximately 5 p.m.). There also is a proposal being considered that would expand the Shared Municipal Court sessions to a second half-day or full day on Thursdays by merging Bernards Township court at the Bedminster court location.
