Guest From Wikipedia, the free encyclo Posted February 16, 2006 Report Share Posted February 16, 2006 Harrison is a town located in Hudson County, New Jersey. As of the United States 2000 Census, the town had a total population of 14,424. The city is presently governed under the Faulkner Act (Mayor-Council) system of municipal government. As in all Faulkner Act municipalities, citizens in the Mayor-Council system enjoy the right of initiative and referendum, meaning that proposed ordinances can be introduced directly by the people without action by the local governing body. This right is exercised by preparing a conforming petition signed by 10% of the registered voters who turned out in the last general election in an odd-numbered year. Once the petition is submitted, the local governing body can vote to pass the requested ordinance, and if it refuses, it is then submitted directly to the voters.
