Millstone Town Council Meeting @ Courtroom
Aug 21 @ 8:00 pm

***Meeting details may change at any time. Please review the official website or check with the meeting organizer when planning to attend.

The Millstone Township Committee is made up of five elected officials. Township residents elect a new committee-person every 3 years on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November. At the Reorganization meeting each year (first meeting in January), the committee elects a Mayor and Deputy Mayor, each of whom serve a term of one year or until the election and qualification of a successor.

The Township Committee is Millstone’s legislative body. It sets policies, approves budgets, determines municipal tax rates, and passes resolutions and ordinances to govern the town. The Committee also appoints citizen volunteers to advisory boards, the Zoning Board of Adjustment, committees, and commissions. The Committee may investigate the conduct of any department, officer or agency of the municipal government. They have full power of subpoena permitted by state statute.

The Township Committee meets in formal session in the Meeting Room, 215 Millstone Road, Millstone Township, NJ on the first and third Wednesday of each month at 8:00 p.m. It also conducts business at “Special” Meetings called by the Mayor or voted upon by the Committee. All Township Committee meetings are open to the public, except portions of meetings in which legal, land acquisition, or personnel matters are discussed. At every regularly scheduled Committee Meeting the Public is given an opportunity to address the Committee and voice concerns or opinions on proposed resolutions and ordinances under consideration by the Committee. The agenda for Township Committee meetings is available in the Municipal Clerk’s office 48 hours prior to a meeting.

Annual World Duckboat Championship Charity Regatta @ Mantoloking Yacht Club
Aug 23 @ 7:00 am – 3:00 pm
Annual World Duckboat Championship Charity Regatta @ Mantoloking Yacht Club

The World Duckboat Championship, conceived by the junior sailors of the Mantoloking Yacht Club in 1969 and continually hosted for 50 years since, is one of the iconic annual events on Barnegat Bay. It is a happening, a celebration of the heritage of Barnegat Bay and wooden boat building.

It is one of the few Championship regattas where junior sailors can race and compete directly with some of the best senior sailors on the Bay. Many who have moved on from our waters return each year just for this event.
