Borough (New Jersey)
A Borough (sometimes spelled Boro on road signage) in the context of New Jersey local government refers to one of five types and one of eleven forms of municipal government.
Traditionally, voters elect a mayor and six council-members at-large in a partisan election. The borough system has a weak mayor and the council performs most legislative and executive functions. This form of local government is used by 39% of the municipalities in New Jersey.
