The five types of local government (Borough, City, Town, Township and Village) usually dictate how the governing body of a municipality is formed. Boonton is designated as a Town and is therefore governed by a Mayor and Board of Aldermen. The Town is divided geographically into four wards with two Aldermen elected per ward. Each ward contains two districts hence two Aldermen. The Mayor serves a 4-year term and is elected by residents from all four wards. Aldermen serve a 2-year term and are elected by the residents of their specific ward. Therefore, the governing body is a nine member board that includes the Mayor and eight Aldermen (two per ward). This will be important to know should you need to contact your Alderman (or the Mayor) with any issues you would like to address. To find out which Ward you live in and who your Aldermen are, use the Ward Street List and the contact information found on this page.
A meeting schedule and list of governing body members can be found below with contact information on the right. All meetings and events happening in Boonton can also be found on the Town Calendar.
