The citizens of Old Bridge Township are fortunate to be led by a progressive governing body dedicated to enhancing the community’s already high quality of life.
The Township operates under a Mayor/Council form of government, which includes one mayor and the nine-member Township Council. Members of the Township Council are elected by voters of the municipality to serve staggered four-year terms. Of the nine members, six comprise the ward council members and three are designated at-large members.
The Township Council joins for regular meetings the second and fourth Monday of each month at 7:30 p.m. in the Municipal Complex. Agenda meetings are held the first and third Monday of each month, while special gatherings and workshops are scheduled periodically. The public is invited to participate in the Township Council meetings, which are also broadcasted live on local Channel 15.
A number of Township departments comprise the local government, offering residents and businesses a full array of public services. Among the notable services are community and economic development initiatives, the library, parks and recreation, senior services, recycling and public safety. In addition to the Township departments are a number of volunteer committees, boards and commissions covering a variety of topics, including cultural arts, open space, historic preservation, environmental issues and many others.
