The Township Council is the legislative body of Hamilton Township.
Hamilton's Mayor-Council form of government calls for the at-large election of five Township Council members, who at its annual organization meeting, elect a president and vice-president to serve for a one-year term each.
The Council represents the public and develops and adopts policies, addresses public issues, formulate township policy through motions, resolutions and ordinances which reflect the needs of the public, and maintains a working knowledge of intergovernmental issues and how they will affect Hamilton Township.
Please see the Rules of Conduct (PDF) for all In-Person and/or Hybrid Meetings.
Please refer to the Township Council calendar for all meeting locations/platforms until further notice.
An agenda for each meeting will be posted on the website prior to the public meeting. Notice of meeting changes (date/time) or additional special meetings will also be posted on this website and listed in Hamilton's official newspapers, the Trenton Times and Trentonian.
Council meetings are open to the public and all are welcome to attend. Members of the public are invited to speak on any agenda matter prior to its adoption by the governing body. Members of the public are invited to speak during the "Public Comment" portion of the meeting.
If you would like to address the Township Council on any matter not listed on the agenda, you will be given two opportunities to relay your thoughts and comments. The first opportunity limits comments from the members of the public to four minutes. After all speakers have spoken for the first time, you may return for a second time to speak and will be limited to two minutes. Constructive comments and a respectful tone create an appropriate decision-making environment for our citizens. Shouting, unruly behavior, abusive or offensive remarks will not be tolerated and will be cause for removal from the meeting. The Rules of Order are posted at the doors of the Council Chambers for review and adherence.
