The charter plan on Hillsborough's ballot is one variation of the mayor-council form of government, which was established in the Optional Municipal Charter Act, known as the Faulkner Act, passed in 1950.
A mayor elected in the mayor-council form of government is a "strong mayor" — the mayor is the local equivalent of the governor or president.
Such a mayor writes the munici-pal budget to submit for council approval (a subcommittee of township committee members prepares the budget now), and hires and fires department heads with the approval of two-thirds of the council members.
