A Mayor/Council form of local government was established by Charter in 1970. This provides for a Mayor who is the Chief Executive Officer of the Municipality, and who is responsible for the administration of the local government. A seven (7) member Council, elected at large, serves as the legislative body. The Charter provides for the Mayor to appoint a Business Administrator to supervise the day-to-day operation of the Township. In addition, the Mayor appoints the Directors of the various Township Departments. Those professionals, along with the Mayor and Council, are responsible for directing Mount Olive’s future growth in a manageable and environmentally sound manner, so that the qualities that make Mount Olive a desirable place to live and to work remain intact.
