Mayor's Message

Welcome to Berkeley Township! Our newly designed website provides residents, and visitors, information about our ever-growing township and gives an overview of the functions of municipal government.

Visit our website often and access our roster of programs and municipal services, which are geared to meet your needs and concerns. With innovative energetic leadership, and committed partners,

Berkeley's future is brighter than ever with its attractive residential areas and charm of a resort town enjoyed by vacationers and lifelong residents. My goal, as your Mayor, along with our Township council members, is to ensure that Berkeley Township is well maintained, open and transparent for its citizens.

I urge you to enjoy Berkeley's many township events held throughout the seasons, our specials events, popular summer concert series and holiday happenings.

Berkeley is a family-oriented town that is enjoyed by residents, and has become a beacon for tourists with its beautiful recreational areas. You are always welcome to contact my office, call 732-244-7400 Ext: 203-or email me at mayor@twp.berkeley.nj.us
