The Commission also contracts for Public Health Services with Allendale (Vital Statistics only), Emerson, Hillsdale, Ho-Ho-Kus, Mahwah, Montvale, Old Tappan, Saddle River, Washington Township, Township of River Vale and Westwood.

Each Commission town is represented by a Local Board of Health. Local Boards of Health in New Jersey are responsible for ensuring the development and implementation of public health policy and programs in communities.
