Hasbrouck Heights 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. The Borough form of government, 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 makes committee and liaison assignments for council members, and most appointments are made by the mayor with the advice and consent of the council.
As of 2013[update], the Mayor of Hasbrouck Heights is Republican Rose Marie Heck, whose term of office ends December 31, 2015. Members of the Hasbrouck Heights Borough Council (with party affliaition, term-end year and committee chairmanship listed in parentheses) are Council President Pamela J. Link (R, 2014; Finance / Social Services and Welfare), Sonya C. Buckman (R, 2013; Recreation and Parks), Justin A. DiPisa (R, 2014; Police), David P. Gonzalez (R, 2013; Fire, Streets, Sanitation), Russell Lipari (R, 2015; Health and Land Use) and Christian Semenecz (D, 2015; Public Facilities and Transportation).

NJ Transit provides rail service via the Pascack Valley Line's Teterboro - Williams Avenue station, which is located on the eastern boundary with Teterboro, just across the tracks from the Williams Avenue dead end in Hasbrouck Heights. Although the rail line's tracks lie entirely within the municipal boundaries of Hasbrouck Heights, and in fact form the borough's eastern boundary with Teterboro, NJ Transit considers the station to be in Teterboro because passenger boarding, passenger shelter, parking lot, and ingress/egress roads are accessed from that town.
In January 2013, NJ Transit erected a 300-foot (91 m) chain link fence in the vicinity of the Williams Avenue dead end as a safety measure to prevent pedestrians/commuters from illegally crossing over the tracks to gain access to the trains on the Teterboro side. Hasbrouck Heights Mayor Rose Marie Heck, NJ Assemblyman Tim Eustace, and Hasbrouck Heights commuters have tried to work with New Jersey Transit to find alternative solutions, including installation of a pedestrian rail crossing with swing gates and warning lights. NJ Transit has indicated there are no immediate alternatives available since funding is not available.
