Opportunities to Serve on Municipal Boards

Posted on November 29, 2016

Montgomery residents who would like to volunteer to serve on a municipal board, commission or committee are encouraged to apply for position appointments for 2017.

Montgomery residents serve on many of the Township’s over 30 committees.  Most of the appointments are made in the beginning of January but vacancies can open up any time throughout the year.  Some of the groups meet regularly once, twice or more a month while others schedule their meetings as they go.  Most but not all meet at night.  Some are permanent committees while others are ad hoc, created to tackle a specific issue.  Besides full member positions, there are alternate and advisory positions available.  Depending on the position, terms can be one, two or three years in length.

According to Mayor Patricia Graham, “Our volunteer boards are invaluable to the Township.  We welcome the involvement of those who want to make a difference in their community and can make the commitment of their time and energy.”

You can learn more about the work of municipal boards and committees on the Boards and Commissions page of this web site.  To apply, fill out a Municipal Volunteer Form.  The form can be filled out several ways, for your convenience.  It is an interactive form on-line which can be emailed with one click.  Go to the Forms page of the township website and scroll down to Volunteer Form. A paper version of form is also available through the Twp. Clerk.  The form may be mailed or brought to the Township Clerk’s Office, 2261 Van Horne Road, Belle Mead, NJ 08502 or emailed to clerk@montgomery.nj.us. Although it is impossible to appoint every interested resident to a committee, submitted forms are kept on file in the event that seats open up during the course of the year.  For further info, call the Township Clerk’s Office at 908-359-8211.
