Millstone Borough is governed by the “Borough” form of government. This type of government allows for a direct election of a Mayor,( 4 year term), and 6 Council positions,( staggering 3 year terms).
The Mayor acts as the administrative authority for the town and is empowered to see that all laws, policies and procedures are enforced. The Mayor chairs all the Council meetings but only votes, when needed, as a tie breaker.
The Council acts as the legislative body that creates, modifies and repeals local ordinances. Further, they each have distinctive roles as liaisons for each department in the township.
Councils, Boards, and Commisions
The Borough Council consists of six members, elected for staggered three year terms. Both the Mayor and Borough Council are elected at-large, that is, to represent the entire community. Elections for all officials in Millstone are conducted during the November General Election.
