Local government[edit]

Dennis Township is governed under the Township form of government with a five-member Township Committee.

The Committee members serve in a part-time capacity and receive an annual salary.[41]

The governing body originally consisted of three elected officials, one of which would be elected by the membership to serve as the Mayor. In 1989 voters approved a ballot question to increase the membership from three members to five members, and in November 1990 the voters elected two additional Committee members.
