Montvale 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 used by Montvale, 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.
The Mayor and Council meet every second Tuesday of the month for formal public meetings and on the last Tuesday of the month for informal work sessions. Meetings are open to the public and residents are given the opportunity to speak on proposed ordinances and other matters of concern at the formal meetings. Government-access television (GATV) usually televises the first meeting of each month on the local Public-access television cable TV channel.
The Mayor is the Chief Executive Officer of the Borough, and as such presides over all public meetings, provides leadership in the development of community projects and makes appointments to various boards. The Borough Council exercises all legislative powers including adoption of the municipal budget, bond ordinances and the general business of the community.
The Council's powers include, for example, adopting all ordinances; reviewing, revising and adopting the budget; making appropriations; levying taxes; authorizing bond issues; providing for the internal structure of local government; providing by ordinance for the creation and abolition of jobs; fixing salaries and establishing general municipal policy.
As of 2013[update], the Mayor of Montvale Borough is Republican Roger J. Fyfe, whose term of office ends December 31, 2015. Members of the Montvale Borough Council are Council President Michael Ghassali (R, 2015), Theresa Cudequest (R, 2015), Rose Curry (R, 2014), Leah J. LaMonica (R, 2014), Timothy E. Lane (R, 2013) and Salvatore J. Talarico (R, 2013).
In the November 2011 general elections, Roger Fyfe was re-elected to his second four-year term of office, while his Republican running mates Rose Curry and Leah LaMonica won three-year terms on the Borough Council, with all three taking their seats as of January 2012.
In elections held on November 3, 2009, voters turned out to fill two three-year seats on the Borough Council. Republican newcomers Theresa Cudequest (1,490 votes) and Michael Ghassali (1,427) won election to the Borough Council, defeating Democratic incumbents Lorna Scully (963) and Elmer C. Wehrle (955). This result capped Montvale's shift back to Republican leadership that began with the election of Roger Fyfe as Mayor in 2007.
