The Municipal Manager Form of Government (NJSA 40-39-1 et seq.)
The Borough of Lodi operates under the Municipal Manager Form of Government. This form is the early predecessor to the Faulkner Act’s
Council-Manager form and is reflective of the progressive effort to
bring a more businesslike, professional approach to local government.
In effect, this form separated policy making (council) from policy
implementation (manager). By law, a municipality can adopt through a
referendum, a three, five or seven-member council, elected at large in
nonpartisan elections. The mayor is selected from the council but the
duties associated with the title are essentially limited to presiding
over and voting with the council and a handful of appointments. The
manager serves as the chief executive of the municipality. The manager operates the municipality in a
businesslike manner. The manager prepares the budget for the council,
oversees the negotiation and implementation of contracts and handles
most personnel matters.
