Woolwich Township is governed by a five member Township Committee who are elected to three-year staggered terms of office. The Mayor is appointed to an annual term by the members of the Township Committee.
This five-member governing body is empowered to enact local ordinances, to levy municipal taxes and conduct the affairs of our community. In almost all cases, it can review and approve the actions of other Woolwich Township committees and boards. The Mayor and Township Committee conducts all of its business during monthly meetings open to the public.
See the Calendar of Events for complete listing of dates and times.
All Legislative powers of the Township are exercised by the Mayor and Township Committee. These powers can take the form of a resolution, ordinance or proclamation.
