How Are Connecticut State, County And Municipal Governments Organized?
Effective October 1, 1960, Connecticut county government was abolished and county functions were transferred to the state government. However, the former county boundaries were retained for election of county sheriffs and for judicial purposes. Thus, Connecticut counties are not counted as governments in U.S. Census Bureau statistics.
SUBCOUNTY GENERAL PURPOSE GOVERNMENTS
The subcounty general purpose governments in Connecticut consist of municipal (city and borough) governments and town governments. These two types of governments are distinguished primarily by the historical circumstances surrounding their incorporation.
In Connecticut, city, borough, and town governments have similar powers and perform similar functions. Towns, which are treated as municipalities in Connecticut statutes, are counted as a separate type of local government in Census Bureau statistics on governments.
The State Constitution authorizes cities, boroughs, towns, consolidated towns and cities, or consolidated towns and boroughs to adopt home rule charters. All subcounty governments in Connecticut are governed by a chief executive officer and a legislative body.
The adopted charter must include the number and method of selection of the legislative body and the powers and duties of both the chief executive officer and the legislative body. A legislative body may be a town meeting, a representative town meeting, a board of selectmen, council, board of directors, board of aldermen, or a board of burgesses, or may be a combination of a town meeting or representative town meeting and one of these legislative bodies.
A chief executive officer may be the first selectman, a chief administrative officer appointed by the board of selectmen, an elected mayor, an elected warden, a town, city, or borough manager appointed by the subcounty legislative body, or a chief administrative officer appointed by the mayor.
The term "municipality," as defined for Census Bureau statistics on governments, applies only to the boroughs and cities in Connecticut.
Cities are located within town areas. The city of Groton is located within a town area but exists separately and is counted as a separate municipal government. For the other 19 cities, the city and town government have been consolidated.
Each is counted once in Census Bureau statistics on governments as a municipal government and not as a town government.
Boroughs are also located within town areas. Most boroughs exist separately from the overlying town government and are counted as separate municipal governments. The borough of Naugatuck is consolidated with the overlying town government and is counted only once as a borough government.
The borough of Woodmont, located within the overlying city (city-town consolidation) of Milford, exists separately, and also is counted only as a borough government.
Town or Township Governments
The entire area of the state is encompassed by town areas. These are counted as town governments in Census Bureau statistics, except for areas in which a town is consolidated with a city or borough government. Towns in Connecticut provide the services that are associated with counties and municipalities in most states.
