Participate in Franklin Township's Decision Making

Franklin Township is formally launching a ground-breaking plan to transform the way the Township’s residents engage in local decision making and interact with their elected officials via PLANETCIVIC, a NJ-based non-partisan civic engagement platform.

Starting February 1st 2018, you will be able to express your views on a number of initiatives spearheaded by the Township Committee. And eventually, you will also be empowered to suggest your own initiatives for the betterment of our community.

The first initiative on which we would like to seek your feedback is:

Should we rename our town Franklin Hills?

To read about this initiative and cast your vote go to

Any resident 13 years old and older and any business owner in Franklin is invited to provide feedback. PlanetCivic will require proof of residency to ensure that only Franklin residents and business owners join the PlanetCivic Franklin community and vote. Voting ends on February 28th 2018*.

Have a real voice in town matters and invite your friends and neighbors to do the same!

*Note: All initiatives put up on PlanetCivic will inform Franklin’s Township Committee and are non-binding. Your vote is confidential unless you decide to make it public. Aggregate voting results will be openly displayed and constantly updated on a real-time basis.
Franklin Township Residents - Recycling Alert

Dear Resident, We need your help! As most of you know recycling is an extremely important building block in maintaining a sustainable community. The Franklin Township Department of Public Works provides residents with a convenient and easy alternative to curbside recycling through the use of the Recycling Center at the DPW garage in Pittstown. The Center is open Monday-Friday 7:00am-3:00pm and the First Saturday of each month from 8:00am – 12:00 noon.

The reason for this letter it to let you know that many residents are using the recycling center as a means to dispose of trash and items not recycled by their own haulers or by those providing the collection at the center. Click Here to Read More
