The Borough of Middletown has a Council/Manager form of government. The Borough Manager is appointed by the Council and serves at its pleasure. Borough Council is comprised of seven (7) members.
Councilors serve four-year terms and these terms are staggered so that in one municipal election, five (5) individuals are to be elected and in the following election, four (4) individuals are to be elected.
Under the Pa. State Boroughs Code, it is up to Borough Council to enact, revise, repeal and amend ordinances and resolutions, and bylaws, rules and regulations. Borough Council also sets the Borough’s budget.
In Middletown, Council usually meets twice a month, with a general business meeting held on the first Tuesday of most months and a “committee-of-the-whole” workshop meeting the third Tuesday of most months (schedules do vary occasionally, click here for the full Council meeting schedule).
Borough Council also has a number of subcommittees which also meet monthly. As a general rule, subcommittees are expected to make reports on their areas of responsibility during the committee of the whole workshop, along with recommendations for items to be placed on the next business meeting’s agenda.
