Sea Girt is governed under the Borough form of New Jersey municipal government, which is used in 218 municipalities (of the 565) statewide, making it the most common form of government in New Jersey. The governing body is comprised of the Mayor and the Borough Council, 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 is comprised 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 Sea Girt 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 2020[update], the Mayor of Sea Girt Borough is Republican Francis K. "Ken" Farrell, whose term of office ends December 31, 2023. Members of the Borough Council are Council President Donald E. Fetzer (R, 2021), Diane Anthony (R, 2020), Matthew Begley (R, 2021; appointed to serve an unexpired term), Mark Clemmensen (R, 2020; elected to serve an unexpired term), Melissa Giegerich (R, 2022) and Matthew Mastrorilli (R, 2022).
In June 2019, the Borough Council appointed Mark Clemmensen to fill the seat expiring in December 2020 that had been held by William Foley until he left office. Matthew Begley was appointed to fill the seat expiring in December 2021 that had been held by Anne B. Morris.
On April 5, 2006, the Borough Council retained a local government consulting firm to review the administrative operations of the Borough and to make recommendations for restructuring and efficiency improvements. Among the recommendations accepted by the Council was the decision to restructure the Municipal Clerk, Finance and Administration Departments and to create for the first time the office of Borough Administrator (who would serve as the municipality's Chief Administrative Officer).
