County government serves as the middle layer of government between the federal and state governments and the municipalities. Passaic County is governed by a seven-member Board of Chosen Freeholders. Each Freeholder is elected at large for a three-year term. The board is headed by a freeholder-director, who is selected for a one-year term at the board's annual reorganization meeting (at the first meeting of the year in January). Under Passaic County's commission form of government, freeholders discharge both executive and legislative responsibilities.           
Coordinating and preparing those things needed for Freeholder meetings includes:
  • Meeting scheduling
  • Preparation of agendas
  • Correspondence to Freeholders:
    • Attendance
    • Recording votes and actions
    • Processing of all resolutions and ordinances
    • Forwarding information to appropriate entities
  • Required legal advertising
  • Acting as the depository of vital county documents including:
    • Bonds
    • Contracts
    • Insurance policies
    • Minutes of meetings
    • Ordinances
    • Resolutions
  • Acting as custodian of the official county seal and affixing it to appropriate documents
