Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

Barrington is governed under the Borough form of New Jersey municipal government. The governing body consists of a Mayor and a Borough Council comprising six council members, with all positions elected at-large on a partisan basis as part of the November general election. A Mayor is elected directly by the voters to a four-year term of office. The Borough Council consists of six members elected to serve three-year terms on a staggered basis, with two seats coming up for election each year in a three-year cycle.[5] The Borough form of government used by Barrington, the most common system used in the state, is a "weak mayor / strong council" government in which council members act as the legislative body with the mayor presiding at meetings and voting only in the event of a tie. The mayor can veto ordinances subject to an override by a two-thirds majority vote of the council. The mayor makes committee and liaison assignments for council members, and most appointments are made by the mayor with the advice and consent of the council.[29][30]

As of 2014, the Mayor of the Borough of Barrington is Democrat Robert Klaus, whose term of office ends December 31, 2015, and who serves as Director of Zoning / Planning / Construction.[31] Members of the Borough Council (with term-end year and committee directorships listed in parentheses) are Council President Kirk Popiolek (D, 2014; Administration and Finance / Community Development), Maureen Bergeron (D, 2016; Public Safety & Fire Alliance, Health / Welfare / Senior Services), Robert Del Vecchio (D, 2014; Health/Welfare & Senior Services, Judicial, Green Team), Shawn Ludwig (D, 2015; Public Works/Buildings & Grounds/Sewer Utility), Patti Nicholson (D, 2015; Civic & Community Services / Constituent Services / Parks & Recreation) and Wayne Robenolt (D, 2016 - serving an unexpired term; Judicial).[32][33][34][35][36]

Wayne Robenolt was elected to fill the vacant seat of Harry Vincent, who died in January 2012.[37]
