Government

Mayor’s Office

Under Vernon’s mayor-council form of government, the mayor is elected directly by the voters and serves as the township’s chief executive. In this capacity, the mayor oversees the day-to-day operations of Vernon, enforces all ordinances, appoints department heads and prepares a budget, all with the assistance of a business administrator.

The mayor attends council meetings and takes part in its discussions but does not have a vote, except when a tie vote in filling a council vacancy occurs.
