About Meetings

Regular meetings of the township council convene on the second and fourth Monday of each month while work sessions generally convene on the first and third Monday of each month. All meetings are held at the municipal building, located at 21 Church Street in Vernon.

Unless otherwise noted, regular meetings begin at 6:30 p.m., however, please note that the council immediately goes into executive session from which the public is excluded. When this occurs, the public portion of the meeting will begin once the executive session has concluded at 7:30 p.m. If there is no executive session, the starting time for the meeting is 7:30 p.m. Work sessions begin at 7:30 p.m.

An agenda for each meeting is posted here and made available to the public at meetings. Notice of meeting date changes and/or additional special meetings will also be posted on this website and advertised in Vernon’s official newspaper, the New Jersey Herald.

Members of the public are welcome to speak during the public comment portion at the beginning of every meeting. The public is also given the opportunity to comment on ordinances prior to final adoption. Those who wish to address the township council and mayor will be asked to limit their comments to five minutes to allow the governing body sufficient time to complete its work.
