An ordinance is a local law set forth by the governing body. The Borough Council is the governing body in Englishtown. Anytime the Governing Body wishes to pass a local law or "ordinance", it must be introduced at a public meeting. Once it is introduced, the Municipal Clerk publishes the ordinance in the legal section of the local paper. The publication indicates the date and time established by the Governing Body for the public hearing on the ordinance. At the public hearing, the ordinance is read by title and then the floor is opened to members of the public who wish to make comments on the ordinance. After the public is finished commenting, the public hearing is closed and the members of the Borough Council vote on the ordinance. If passed, the ordinance is again published in the local paper and takes effect immediately upon publication. The only exception is bond ordinances which take effect 20 days after publication.
The following introduced ordinances are awaiting public hearing at the next regularly scheduled Council Meeting to be held on Monday, April 24th 2017 at 6:30pm in the Municipal Building located at 15 Main Street, Englishtown NJ
