If you missed Tuesday’s Morristown council meeting, which was streamed live via video and telephone conference call, below is audio recorded from my computer.
The echo and feedback were part of the webcast. Town officials participated from remote locations, via their computers, because town hall is closed and the state has banned all gatherings during the coronavirus pandemic.
Topics included a local death from COVID-19, donations of protective gear to the hospital, and initiatives to help town businesses. Contracts also were approved to move forward on a long-delayed Speedwell Avenue park.
Present: Mayor Tim Dougherty, Administrator Jillian Barrick, town Attorney Vij Pawar and town Clerk Margot Kaye; Council President Stefan Armington and Vice President Toshiba Foster, and Council Members Michael Elms, Robert Iannaccone, David Silva, Tawanna Cotten and Sandi Mayer.

You can see the meeting agenda here.
The agenda indicates the board will consider granting site plan approval for an 85-apartment complex on Morris Street–originally dubbed “The LW,” for Live-Work, which replaced a controversial proposal for a self-storage facility.
Council President Stefan Armington, council liaison to the planning board, said on Tuesday that the board would not discuss the pending M Station office redevelopment. It remains on the agenda, however.
