Government Contacts

The state of Connecticut is comprised of 30 municipalities, with 149 township governments, and 384 special districts. Since the abolishment of the county government in the 1960s, counties in this state have been geographical subdivisions without governmental functions. There are also 17 public school districts within the state.

Cities in Connecticut State use either mayor-council or council-manager form of government. The former has its elected council determine its policies, appoint city managers, and enact legislation. The former on the other hand employs an elected chief executive who then gets control of the administrative agencies and has appointment powers.

Most towns in the state have a board member of three elected officials who heads the administrative branch. The legislative body is the town meeting, which is composed of registered voters. Boroughs, on the other hand, are overseen by an elected warden. Legislative functions are done by borough meetings.
