Member Municipalities

Current members are the Townships of Allamuchy, Frelinghuysen, Independence, Mansfield, Washington (Warren) and Washington (Morris) and the Boroughs of Hackettstown and Washington Borough (Warren).

Governance

The COG meets monthly as a confederation however the member municipalities are seeking not-for-profit status, at which time they will operate in a more permanent and formal capacity.

The COG consists of delegates appointed by the participating municipalities.

Initiatives

The participating municipalities are seeking IRS "Not-for-Profit" designation and are in the process of formally incorporating under the laws of the State of New Jersey.

In July 2006, the Warren-Morris Council of Governments designated an outside consulting group as the COG's Shared Services Advisor to oversee the many aspects of coordinating the Shared Services initiatives of the participating municipalities.
