GOVERNING  BODY

Mayor & Borough Council

Oceanport operates under the Borough form of New Jersey municipal government. The Borough form is often referred to as a “weak mayor-strong council” form. The mayor retains all general law authority, presides over council meetings and can vote in the case of a tie. The mayor appoints, with the advice and consent of council, all subordinate officers of the municipality. The council is the legislative body of the Borough. All executive responsibilities not placed in the office of the Mayor by general law or the Borough law remain with the council.

The Borough Council is comprised of six members, elected by the public in partisan elections for three-year terms of office on a staggered schedule, with two seats coming up for election each year. All members have equal power and may vote on all issues. The Mayor is elected by the public in partisan elections for a four-year term of office.
NOTICE:  Email received by or sent to Borough officials is subject to the Open Public Records Act [OPRA]. This means that absent some specific privilege, all such communications are considered a public record and are subject to publication and/or dissemination to the public upon request.

Mayor Tvrdik's Message

FEB/MAR 2024

I want to thank the residents of Oceanport for allowing me the opportunity to serve this wonderful community for the next four years as Mayor. Oceanport is growing and developing, and it is important to me that our residents feel included and have a voice in this growth and development. Communication between the Borough’s government and our residents will be a priority during this administration. No less important will be the continuation of the great relationships that have been developed between our municipal government and the volunteers who support our community through their time and selfless dedication to Oceanport’s residents.

Re-organization day is always a very special event and this year it was especially noteworthy.   Read More....
