How Are Maine State, County And Municipal Governments Organized?
The entire area of the state of Maine is encompassed by county governments. The county governing body is the board of county commissioners.
The counties are responsible for only limited functions in Maine: principally the maintenance of the courthouse probate court and county jail, the registry of deeds and registry of probate, the provision of county sheriff functions, and certain services for unorganized territory within the county such as solid waste management functions and maintenance of roads. Some counties own and maintain county airports.
SUBCOUNTY GENERAL PURPOSE GOVERNMENTS
The subcounty general purpose governments in Maine consist of municipal (city) governments and town or plantation governments. These two types of governments are distinguished primarily by the historical circumstances surrounding their incorporation. In Maine, the city, town, and plantation governments perform most local government services.
About 40 percent of the area of the state, however, has no city or town government. Gores, American Indian reservations, and unorganized or unincorporated territories exist outside the areas of cities, towns, and plantations.
Most governmental services in these areas, which are not provided by county governments, are provided by the state. Village corporations are counted as special district governments for U.S. Census Bureau statistics on governments.
The term "municipality" as defined for Census Bureau statistics on governments applies only to cities in Maine.
Cities are created by special legislation. Under home rule, however, cities may draft their own charters on petition of voters and after an election. Towns and plantations, to which the term "municipalities" is generally applied by Maine statutes, are counted for Census Bureau statistics on governments as town governments, rather than municipal governments.
Town or Township Governments
Although not differing in legally authorized powers from the cities, the towns and plantations in Maine are counted as town governments in Census Bureau statistics on governments. The town executive body is known as a board of selectmen, while the plantation executive body is the board of assessors.
Town governments exist in each county in Maine. Under home rule provisions, towns may draft their own charters. Towns and plantations perform many of the duties elsewhere commonly associated with county governments.
