Township Committee

Pennsville Township Committee

The Township Committee is comprised of five members – the Mayor and four individuals, each of who serves a term of three years.  At the reorganization meeting in January, the Committee selects one of its own to serve as Mayor.  The Township Committee constitutes the legislative branch of local government, and as part of their responsibilities, they develop and adopt ordinances which become the law of our Municipality.  The Committee exercises the fiscal control of the Township’s finances by adopting an annual budget.

The Township Committee holds two meetings a month on the first and third Thursday.  Our meetings are held at 6:30 p.m.  All meetings are in the municipal building at 90 North Broadway, and the public is encouraged to attend and participate.
