Local government[edit]

Mountainside is governed by a Mayor-Council form of government as authorized through the Option Municipal Charter Law (commonly called the Faulkner Act). Under this form of local government a Mayor is elected for a term of four years and there is a Borough Council consisting of six members, elected for three-year terms each, with two seats coming up for election each year. Both the Mayor and Borough Council are elected at large, that is, to represent the entire community. Elections for all officials in Mountainside Borough are conducted on a partisan basis during the November General Election.[6]

As of 2013, the mayor of Mountainside is Paul N. Mirabelli (R, term of office ends on December 31, 2015). Members of the Borough Council are Council President Keith C. Turner (R, 2014), Deanna Andre (R, 2014), William R. Lane (R, 2015), Robert W. Messler (R, 2015), Glenn Mortimer (R, 2013) and Rene Dierkes (R, 2013).[28][29][30][31][32]

At an annual reorganization meeting held in the beginning of January, the board selects a Chairman and Vice Chairman from among its members.[45] As of 2014, Union County's Freeholders are Chairman Christopher Hudak (D, Linden, term ends December 31, 2014),[46] Vice Chairman Mohamed S.

The Mountainside School District serves public school students in Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade. Schools in the district (with 2010-11 enrollment data from the National Center for Education Statistics[68]) are Beechwood School[69] (grades PreK-2; 267 students) and Deerfield School[70] (grades 3-8; 535 students).[71]

Emergency medical services[edit]

The Mountainside Rescue Squad covers Mountainside. Due to membership shortage the Mountainside Rescue squad is covered by Atlantic EMS at times.[74]

Transportation[edit]

New Jersey Transit bus operations routes 114 and 117 provide service to the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Midtown Manhattan in New York City while routes 65 and 66 travel to Downtown Newark, all making local stops at points in proximate communities.[75] An early use of bus rapid transit in New Jersey, a BBS (bus bypass shoulder, originally called a BOS or bus on shoulder lane) has been in operation for many years. Unlike most towns along Route 22, zoning in Mountainside does not allow for much commercial development adjacent to the freeway.[76] For a one mile stretch in the town, the eastbound shoulder on the arterial road can be used for peak hour buses.[77] In 2012, NJDOT regulated the BBS as an exclusive bus lane from 6 to 7:30am.[78] In 2009, NJDOT funded construction of two bus turnouts along the road in nearby Union.[79]

Newark Liberty International Airport is approximately 11 miles (18 km) east of Mountainside.
