The Hoboken City Council is the law-making body of the City of Hoboken. It is comprised of (3) three At-Large members elected to represent the entire City and six (6) members elected to represent one of our City’s six (6) wards. The Council monitors the operation and performance of city agencies, makes land use decisions and has sole responsibility for approving the city’s budget. It also legislates on a wide range of other subjects.
Most of the Council’s legislative work is done in committee. It is there that proposed legislation is initially debated and the members of other government branches and the public are given a chance to comment. Each Council Member serves on at least two (2) of the Council’s eight (8) standing committees. You can view the full list and download the list of the committee members here.
