County government serves as the middle layer of government between the federal and state governments, and the municipalities. Passaic County is governed by a seven-member Board of County Commissioners. New Jersey has 21 counties, and no two counties are exactly the same. The organization and structure of counties are tailored to fit their communities’ needs and characteristics. In Passaic County’s commission form of government, the County Commissioners discharge both the legislative and executive responsibilities of government. The seven member board is headed by a Director who is selected to serve a one-year term at the Board’s annual reorganization meeting held in January. Each County Commissioner is elected at-large for a staggered 3-year term.
