Mayor and Town Committee


Franklin Township utilizes the traditional Township form of government. As such, 5 committee members are elected at-large in partisan elections to serve staggered three year terms.  The Committee appoints a Mayor and Deputy Mayor at the annual Re-organization Meeting and each serves a one year term.  The Mayor serves as Chairperson of the Committee and votes as an equal member but has no other special powers under this form of government.

The Committee as a whole exercises all legislative and executive powers, including the power of appointments.  They may delegate, by ordinance, all or a portion of executive responsibilities to an administrator and may adopt an administrative code.
