Hackensack related issues:

1. A public hearing concerning the proposed relocation of the County Police HQ and DPW will be held at the current Zabriske Street Street facility on April 29, at 7:00 (time will be verified).  The public is encouraged to attend this important meeting for Hackensack residents.

2. A resolution was passed to allow for a feasibility study into building a shelter with expanded services and 75 beds - plus room for 25 additional beds (for emergencies) at the Kansas Street Shelter.  The study will cost approximately $50,000.  

Other County-wide issues:

1.  The Freeholders acknowleged Bergen County Women as March is "Women's History Month".
