Opportunities to Serve on Municipal Boards

Posted on December 28, 2017

Montgomery residents who would like to volunteer to serve on a municipal board, commission or committee are encouraged to apply for position appointments for 2018.

Montgomery residents serve on many of the Township’s over 30 committees.  Most of the appointments are made in the beginning of January but vacancies can open up any time throughout the year.  Some of the boards meet regularly once or twice a month while others schedule their meetings as they go.  Most but not all meet at night.  Some are permanent committees while others are ad hoc, created to tackle a specific issue.  Besides full member positions, there are alternate and advisory positions available.  Depending on the position, terms can be one, two or three years in length.

Mayor Ed Trzaska stated, “Our volunteer boards are invaluable to the Township.  Explore the options before taking the plunge by viewing our new web video series!”

You can learn more about the work of specific municipal boards and committees by viewing the short video interviews with chairpersons on the VOLUNTEER! page of our web site.  To apply, fill out a Municipal Volunteer Form.  The form can be filled out several ways, for your convenience.  This is a fillable form which can be emailed.   A paper version of form is also available through the Twp. Clerk’s Office.  The form may be mailed or brought to the Township Clerk’s Office, 2261 Van Horne Road, Belle Mead, NJ 08502 or emailed to clerk@montgomery.nj.us. Although it is impossible to appoint every interested resident to a committee, submitted forms are kept on file for when seats open up during the course of the year.  For further info, call the Township Clerk’s Office at 908-359-8211.
