Government

Local government

Rockleigh is governed under the Borough form of New Jersey municipal government, which is used in 218 municipalities (of the 565) statewide, making it the most common form of government in New Jersey.[40] The governing body is comprised of a Mayor and a Borough Council, with all positions elected at-large on a partisan basis as part of the November general election. A Mayor is elected directly by the voters to a four-year term of office. The Borough Council is comprised of six members elected to serve three-year terms on a staggered basis, with two seats coming up for election each year in a three-year cycle.[6] The Borough form of government used by Rockleigh is a "weak mayor / strong council" government in which council members act as the legislative body with the mayor presiding at meetings and voting only in the event of a tie. The mayor can veto ordinances subject to an override by a two-thirds majority vote of the council. The mayor makes committee and liaison assignments for council members, and most appointments are made by the mayor with the advice and consent of the council.[41][42]

As of 2020, the Mayor of Rockleigh is Republican Robert R. Schaffer, whose term of office ends December 31, 2022. Members of the Rockleigh Borough Council are Marilyn A. Bresnak (R, 2021), Frank S. Cumiskey (R, 2020), David C. Hansen (R, 2022), Douglas B. Johnsen Sr. (R, 2020), John Ivan Mender (R, 2021) and James G. Pontone (R, 2022).[3][43][44][45][46][47]

In elections held in November 2010, Robert R. Schaffer ran a successful write-in campaign and defeated incumbent mayor Nick Langella by a 2-1 margin. Councilmembers Shirl Ewald and James Pontone were re-elected.[48]

Law enforcement services in Rockleigh are provided under contract by the Northvale Police Department.[49] The borough paid Northvale $325,000 per year for police coverage in 2017.[50]
