The Flood Mitigation Committee (FMC), comprised of five members shall review, prioritize and make funding recommendations to the Morris County Board of Chosen Freeholders. Meetings shall be held monthly, on an as-needed basis. A quorum shall consist of three FMC members.
All nominees to the FMC shall be reviewed according to standard County procedures in order to avoid any potential conflict of interest. The Morris County Board of Chosen Freeholders shall appoint the FMC based upon recommendations from the Open Space Trust Fund Committee, whose current membership shall be the source of members for the FMC. The term of the FMC member shall be consistent with their Open Space Trust Fund Committee term.
The Morris County Board of Chosen Freeholders may also appoint a Freeholder liaison to the FMC; who shall not have voting privileges.
Potential FMC members must have accumulated one year of experience on the Open Space Trust Fund Committee prior to serving on the FMC. Each year at their first annual meeting the FMC shall elect two officers from their ranks: a Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson, for a term of one year.
