Cinnaminson Township: A “Township” Form of Government:

In New Jersey, all 565 municipalities, regardless of their form of government can be classified as belonging to one of the five types of traditional governments or one of the seven types of optional forms of municipal governments.

The five traditional forms are: The Borough, The Township, The City, The Town and The Village.

The seven optional forms of government available for adoption are: The Commission, the Council-Manager Act of 1923, The Mayor-Council Plan, the Council-Manager Plan, the Small Municipality Plan, the Mayor-Council-Administrator Plan, and Special Charters.

Of these seven, all are available by adoption except for the Small Municipal Plan which is only available to municipalities with a population under 12,000.

In Cinnaminson… we operate under one of the traditional forms of government….. the Township Form of Government.

The Township Form is the oldest form of Municipal Government in New Jersey… and is current used by 144 out of the 566 municipalities.

Under the current township government laws, the township committee remains the backbone of the municipality’s government. Voters elect… at large… the township committee comprising of five members. The elections are partisan and the committee members serve staggered three year terms. Each member of our township committee serve as commissioners of various township departments, overseeing the work of those areas along with overall legislative issues and executive responsibilities. Their power is equal and not as individuals so all matters must be decided by a majority of the committee.

In this form of government, the members of the committee select the Mayor and Deputy Mayor to serve for a one year term. The Mayor serves as the chair of the township committee and the head of our Municipal Government. He or She has a voice and a vote in all issues before the committee. He or She also has all the general powers be-stowed to Mayor’s by New Jersey law.

Some of those general powers are selecting certain members to the planning and zoning boards, selecting members of any Mayor’s Ad Hoc Committees, signing checks, contracts and other legal documents as authorized by the majority of committee, setting items on the meeting agendas, swearing oaths, and performing marriage ceremonies statewide.

This is how our government in Cinnaminson works.
