Mayor/ Council/ Administration
The North Brunswick Township Governing body is the only Mayor /Council /Administrator form of local government in New Jersey.
It was formed as a result of a Charter Study in 1982. As a variant of the Faulkner Act (NJSA:40:69A-149 et. seq.), the Mayor is directly elected by the voters and serves a term of four years. Council members are elected to serve three year terms. Council terms are staggered so that two Council seats are up for election each year.
