Township Council


The township council is the legislative body of Randolph.

Randolph's council-manager form of government calls for the partisan, at-large election of seven Township Council members, from whom the elected body selects one of its members to serve as mayor each year.

The Council represents the public and develops and adopts policies, resolves public issues, formulates township policy through motions, resolutions and ordinances which reflect the needs of the public, and maintains a working knowledge of intergovernmental issues and how they will affect the Township of Randolph. Twelve separate advisory boards and committees assist policy formulation of the council.

The Township Council is similar to a corporate board of directors and is assisted by the Township Attorney, who prepares ordinances and advises on legal issues, the Township Clerk, who prepares resolutions, and the Township Manager, who functions much like the CEO of a corporation.


Township Council meetings are held at 6:00 pm (unless otherwise noted) in Town Hall at 502 Millbrook Avenue, Randolph, NJ 07869.

As of October 2012, an agenda for each meeting is posted on BoardDocs as well as on the bulletin board at town hall. Notice of meeting date changes and/or additional special meetings will also be posted on this website and advertised in Randolph's official newspaper, the Randolph Reporter.

Council meetings are public meetings and all interested persons are encouraged to attend. Members of the public are invited to speak during the "public comment" portion at the beginning and end of every meeting. The public is also given the opportunity to comment on ordinances prior to final adoption. If you plan to address the township council, please bear in mind that you will be asked to limit your comments to six minutes. Succinct, constructive comments and a respectful tone are greatly appreciated and create an appropriate decision-making environment.
