Mayor & Borough Council

New Providence has been governed by a mayor and council since it was incorporated as an independent, self-governing municipality on March 14, 1899. The mayor is the chief executive of the borough and serves a four-year term. The mayor presides at council meetings but votes only in the case of a tie. The Borough Council acts as the legislative body of the borough and enacts the local laws or ordinances. Six council representatives are elected from the borough at large for three-year terms, which are staggered, so that two council representatives are elected each year.
