Bellmawr is a borough in Camden County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 11,583,[8][9][10] reflecting an increase of 321 (+2.9%) from the 11,262 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn declined by 1,341 (-10.6%) from the 12,603 counted in the 1990 Census.[19]

Bellmawr was incorporated as a borough on March 23, 1926, from portions of the now-defunct Centre Township, based on the results of a referendum held on April 21, 1926. The boroughs of Mount Ephraim, Runnemede and Lawnside were also created in the same two-day period.[20] The borough was named for Ernest C. Bell.[21]

Bellmawr is home to the main post office for the area, one of the largest in the state of New Jersey, handling an average of 4.5 million pieces of mail daily.[22] In late October 2001 the office was closed due to possible anthrax contamination in the wake of the 2001 anthrax attacks. The office was re-opened several days later, in early November, after testing negative for anthrax.[23]

Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

Bellmawr is governed under the borough form of New Jersey municipal government. The government 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.[6] The Borough form of government used by Bellmawr, 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, which can be overridden with a 2/3 vote of the council. The mayor makes committee and liaison assignments for council members, with most appointments are made by the mayor subject to the advice and consent of the council.[30]

As of 2014, the Mayor of the Borough of Bellmawr is Democrat Frank Filipek, whose term of office ends December 31, 2014. The members of the Bellmawr Borough Council (with party affiliation, term-end year and committee assignments listed in parentheses) are John P. Bollinger (D, 2014; Public Safety), James F. D'Angelo (D, 2014; Recreation), David Duncan (D, 2014; Court, Construction, Personnel), Steve B. Haggerty (D, 2015; Buildings and Lands, Senior Citizen Liaison), Steve M. Sauter (D, 2015; Public Works, Environmental & Beautification) and Joshua Tregear (D, 2014 - serving an unexpired term; Finance).[31][32][33][34]

In November 2012, the council selected Joshua Tregear, from among a list of three candidates recommended by the Camden County Democratic Committee, to fill the vacant seat of Regina Piontkowski, who had resigned two months earlier after serving nearly 20 years in office.[35]
