Recording public meetings may now come with guidelines

A New Jersey township has set some limits

MANSFIELD TWP., N.J. - A township in Warren County, New Jersey wants to set limits on how residents can record public meetings.

Mansfield Township officials say citizens have the right to record, videotape and take pictures but they want to set some guidelines.

Some of those include giving township officials an hour verbal notice prior to the meeting, completing setup of any equipment 10 minutes ahead of meetings, and refraining from making distracting noise.

Officials will consider adopting the ordinance March 14.
