Mendham Borough is a borough in Morris County, New Jersey, in the United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 4,981,[10][11][12] reflecting a decline of 116 (-2.3%) from the 5,097 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 207 (+4.2%) from the 4,890 counted in the 1990 Census.[21]

Mendham Township, which included present-day Mendham Borough, was formed on March 29, 1749, from portions of Hanover Township, Morris Township and Rockaway Township.

Mendham Borough was incorporated by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on May 15, 1906, from portions of Mendham Township.[22] Residents of what became Mendham Borough wanted sidewalks and street lights constructed while those that lived in what remained the Township (including the communities of Brookside and Ralston) felt it was cost prohibitive in their more rural areas.[23]

Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

Mendham Borough 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.[7] The Borough form of government used by Mendham Borough, 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.[32][33] From 2002 - 2007, the borough council maintained a "student representative" position filled by a high school student from the borough.[citation needed]

The mayor is considered the head of the municipal government and as chief executive is responsible to see that all state laws and borough ordinances are faithfully executed. The mayor, who is elected to a four-year term, presides over the borough council meetings and only votes in order to break a tie. The mayor can veto ordinances and appoint subordinate officials, ad hoc committees and certain other officials to boards, committees and commissions.

As of 2013, the mayor is Neil J. Henry, Jr. (R, term ends December 31, 2014).[4] Members of the Borough Council are Council President Stanley Witczak, III (R, 2015), John M. Andrus (R, 2015), Brad Badal (R, 2014), Dr. Veronica Daly (R, 2013), Louis S. Garubo (R, 2014) and David Sharkey (R, 2013).[34][35][36]

Morris County is governed by a seven-member Board of Chosen Freeholders, who are elected at-large to three-year terms on a staggered basis, with either two or three seats up for election each year as part of the November general election. The Freeholder Board sets policies for the operation of six super-departments, more than 30 divisions plus authorities, commissions, boards and study committees.[50] Actual day-to-day operation of departments is supervised by County Administrator, John Bonanni.[51] As of 2014, Morris County's Freeholders are Freeholder Director Thomas Mastrangelo (Montville, term ends December 31, 2016),[52] Deputy Freeholder Director David Scapicchio (Mount Olive Township, 2015),[53] Douglas Cabana (Boonton Township, 2016),[54] John Cesaro (Parsippany-Troy Hills Township, 2015),[55] Kathryn A.
