Mayor and Borough Council

Hopewell Borough operates under the Borough form of government and has done so since 1891. The major components to this system of government are the Mayor/Council and a Borough Administrator. The Borough Council is the legislative body, establishing town policies, while the Borough Administrator is designated to carry out the directives of the Mayor and Council. Our Borough Council consists six at large Council members who serve 3 year terms. The Mayor is separately elected and serves a 4 year term.  The Borough Council generally meets on the first Thursday of every month at 7:00pm.
