Borough council opposes providing description of meeting agenda items

In a resolution recently  approved by the borough, council listed more than a dozen reasons it opposed N.J. State Senate Bills 1451 and 1452.

Barrington Municipal Building“S-1451 includes a number of proposed requirements which involve … impractical requirements and impediments,” the document reads.

In particular, council is disturbed about “a new requirement that agendas provide a description of all agenda items, including the names of parties to and approximate dollar amounts of any contracts to be acted upon.”

I reached out to the borough seeking a comment on why they oppose providing this information. I have to give credit to the borough — and specifically Mayor Robert Klaus — for getting a response to me on the same business day.

That response is below (note: it’s in the same PDF format it was mailed to me):
