The position of the Borough Clerk is required by New Jersey Statute N.J.S.A. 40A:9-133 and, therefore, the Borough Clerk is responsible for many statutory duties.
The duties of the Clerk include the following:
The Municipal Clerk receives all requests under the Open Public Records Act (OPRA). OPRA applies to requests for records, not requests for isolated facts. In order to be considered a valid request under OPRA, the request must identify the specific record(s) desired and the request must be submitted to the records custodian of the public agency that has the record. A New Jersey Appeals Court recently ruled that requestors do not need to use the agency’s records request form but any request must include all required information.
