Note: Effective as of January 1, 1964, the voters of the Township of Woodbridge, by referendum held on November 6, 1962, and acting pursuant to the Optional Municipal Charter Law. (N.J.S.A. 40:69A-1 et seq.), commonly known as the "Faulkner Act," adopted Article 8, Mayor-Council Plan F, of that statute as their form of local government. [Article 8 was repealed by P.L. 1979, c. 83, § 1 (N.J.S.A. 40A:16-23). For continuance of a Charter of a municipality with a Mayor-Council Plan adopted prior to January 9, 1982, see N.J.S.A. 40:69A-208.1.] Pursuant to this Plan, the Township is governed by an elected Council of nine (9) members and an elected Mayor, each of whom serves for a term of four (4) years. Four (4) of the Councilmen are elected at large, and one (1) Councilman is elected from each of the five (5) wards into which the Township is divided. The terms of the Councilmen At Large overlap those of the Ward Councilmen so that an election is held every two (2) years for either Ward Councilmen or Councilmen At Large, as the case may be.
For statutes requiring the taking of oaths of office and requiring bond of certain officers and employees, see the Local Fiscal Affairs Law, N.J.S.A. 40A:5-33 et seq.
The voters of the Township, by referendum held on November 4, 1947, adopted the provisions of the Civil Service Act (N.J.S.A. 11:3).
