Township Committee

Springfield Township was created by an act of the New Jersey State Legislature and was formed as a Township on April 14, 1794. Since its incorporation as a municipality, the Township operates under the Township Committee form of government and is comprised five members elected to staggered, three-year terms. At the Committee’s organizational meeting each January, one member is elected to serve as Mayor for a twelve-month term and another is chosen to serve as Deputy Mayor.

Township Committee meetings are regularly scheduled on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. in Town Hall and workshop meetings are regularly scheduled on the Monday preceding the first meeting of each month.  There may be exceptions or changes.  Visit the Township Calendar for specific dates. Township Committee meetings (except for Executive Session) are open to the public; anyone may attend and speak during a public comment session.  Public comments are welcome during the beginning of the Township Committee (on agenda items only), near the end of the meeting (on any governmental item), or at the time an ordinance is being considered for adoption at the second/final reading.  Public comments are limited to 5 minutes per person and speakers must provide their name and address at the meeting before comment.
