When Will The Edgewater Park Township Closed Session Minutes be Available?

Does anyone know if the Township Clerk has released any of the minutes for any of the Township Committee's Executive (Closed) Sessions that have taken place during the past year?

Our local officials, are they breaking the Sunshine law?

What Minutes?

Much of  the business conducted by our Township Committee, occurs in Executive Session.  The NJ Public Meetings Law and State Court rulings have been very clear about the time frame Executive Meeting are to be made public and our Clerk needs to correct this over site. If this doesn't change, I will pass on this information to John Paff who has brought suit against many NJ Municipalities who have refused to comply with the law. You can read about his efforts at

It would be very helpful if the Township would post the agenda for all meetings of township committees, boards and authorities as well as the minutes. This would not cost anything and would help with lowering copy cost for the required public copies. I think this idea was a campaign promise.

Let me know if you are aware of any Executive Session Minutes that were made available to the public last year at
