The Township of Dennis was established in 1826. The Township operates under the Township Committee form of government with five members, one of its members serving as Mayor, pursuant to New Jersey State Statutes. All committee members serve in a part-time capacity and receive an annual salary.

Pursuant to New Jersey Law, the committee has the authority to adopt, amend and repeal any ordinance or resolution for any purpose required for the government; reviewing, revising and adopting the annual budget; make appropriations, levying taxes, authorizing bond issues; providing for the internal structure of the local government; providing by ordinance for the creation and abolition of jobs; fixing salaries; establishing municipal policy and adopting an Administrative Code. Committee also has the authority to initiate hearings for the purpose of gathering information for ordinance making, public situations or issues, as well as, supervising the spending of appropriations.

Statutes governing the Township form of government can be found in N.J.S. 40A:63-1 et seq.
