Maywood was incorporated as a borough on June 29, 1894, from portions of Midland Township, based on the results of a referendum held that day.

The borough's name came from the name of a station established in the area by the New Jersey Midland Railroad.

Maywood 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 Maywood, 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.
As of 2016[update], the Mayor of Maywood is Republican Adrian Febre, serving a term of office ending December 31, 2019. Members of the Borough Council are Council President Frank Morrone (R, 2018; who switched parties from Democrat to Republican in 2015), Rickie A. DeHeer (R, 2017), Michael Gervino (R, 2016), Thomas Lindenau (R, 2016), Francis J. "Frank" Messar, III (R, 2017) and Claire Padovano (R, 2018).
Adrian Febre was appointed to serve the remaining term of office vacated by former Mayor Gregg Padovano who resigned upon his appointment to a seat on the New Jersey Superior Court. In turn, Michael Gervino was appointed in February 2015 to serve the remaining months of the council tern term vacated by Febre. Gervino won election in November 2015 to serve the balance of the term.
In elections held on November 4, 2013, Republican incumbent Adrian Febre and Republican newcomer Thomas Lindenau defeated Democratic incumbent Erich Fleischmann and Democratic newcomer Jonathan King, shifting the council from a 3-3 tie in 2013 to a majority of four Republicans versus two Democrats.
