Lakewood Zoning board backs off imposing recording guidelines, leaves it up to the township committee to decide

At last nights ZB meeting/TBL
At the zoning board last night the ZB attorney and board chairman reiterated they are not camera shy and have nothing against anyone recording the meetings, they understand its anyone's right to come and record either with a video or microphone and anyone is invited to do so including First amendment activist. Originally the board was going to adopt new recording guidelines that will allow taping of meetings while at the same time protecting attorney client privilege which is the opinion of the board attorney.  
The board backed off at the end after discussing (was contacted) the issue with the Lakewood township attorney and decided to let the matter be dealt with by the township committee. If the committee feels the need to set guidelines it can adopt an ordnance to implement guidelines and restrictions.
HT-via comment.

  2. The above article is wrong. The boardsecond lawyer said he was going to propose rules but the townships lawyer asked him to back off. After all the heat and hate Menashe needs to do something to look good.
