Office of the Township Clerk

The Office of the Township Clerk
"Your Doorway to Local Government"

The office of the Township Clerk is historical in its traditions, serving as a direct link between residents and their local government since Biblical times. The early keepers of archives were often called "rememberers" and before writing came into use, their memory served as the public record.

NJ Statutes define the Municipal Clerk's responsibilities as:

  • Secretary to the Governing Body
  • Secretary to the Municipal Corporation
  • Administrative and Licensing Officer
  • Election Administrator and Registrar of Voters
  • Custodian of Records

However, these core duties reflect just a portion of the many responsibilities and activities of the Township Clerk's Office.
