Township Committee governs Freehold Township. It is the oldest form of government in New Jersey and is considered to be the most responsive to the needs of its citizens. Freehold Township is governed by five Committee persons, each of whom is elected for a three-year staggered term. At the beginning of each year, the Committee members elect one of their members to serve as Mayor and one as Deputy Mayor for that year.
This five-member Committee is empowered to enact local ordinances, to levy municipal taxes and conduct the affairs of this community. In almost all cases, it can review and approve the actions of other Freehold Township boards, committees and agencies. The Township Committee conducts all of its business during monthly meetings open to the public.
You can reach the office of the Mayor by dialing 732-294-2001.
