HILLSBOROUGH, NJ - The annual Township Committee reorganization meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Jan, 2nd beginning at 7 p.m. at the municipal building, 379 South Branch Road.
Reorganization meetings following November elections are generally required to be held in the first seven days of January. The rule applies to New Jersey municipalities that have a traditional form of government, including the town, city, borough, township and village forms, according to the New Jersey Foundation for Open Government. School boards have a few more days, according to state statutes; their deadline is Jan.10th.
Mayor Frank DelCore, reelected to a fifth term on the Township Committee in November, will hand off the gavel to his successor, expected to be current Deputy Mayor Douglas Tomson, after a vote by the five-member Township Committee.
The oath of office will be administered to the new mayor, which will be followed by a succession of appointments to various boards and committees, including the Planning Board, Zoning Board, Environmental Commission and others. The Committee will also vote to approve the position of township attorney and make other professional appointments.
Several resolutions will also be on the agenda.
All municipal offices are closed on New Year's Day.
