Departmental Budget Hearing Dates announced for 2019

The Fiscal Committee of the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders today announced a set of open public hearings in March for the review of the 2019 Executive Budget.

The first two hearings—Monday, March 11th in Kenilworth, and Tuesday, March 12th in Elizabeth—will begin at 5 p.m. The third—and final hearing on Monday March 18th in Westfield—will begin at 5:30 p.m. The departments and constitutional offices are listed below that will be appearing before the Freeholder’s Fiscal Committee.
