Our Leadership

Township Committee

Harrison Township operates under the ‘Township’ form of municipal government and is comprised of five members elected at-large through partisan elections. Members of township committee serve staggered three-year terms and reorganize annually during which the mayor is elected amongst members of township committee. Mayor Louis Manzo serves as chair of the township committee, is considered the head of the municipal government and has the powers vested in accordance with New Jersey statute. Generally, any action taken by the mayor and township committee is done through passing resolutions and adopting ordinances. In addition to the duties outlined above, Township Committee members also participate as liaison members of various boards and commissions within the township.

Township Committee Work Session meetings are held the first Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m., and Regular Business Meetings are held on the third Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. All meetings are held in the Municipal Building and are open to the public; residents are encouraged to attend.
