Government

The Town of Louisburg is governed by the Louisburg Town Council who appoints a Town Administrator to manage the daily operations of the town. Municipalities in NC are creatures of the State, meaning that municipalities (towns, cities, villages, hamlets, etc.) are created only by a Charter enacted by the NC General Assembly. All powers and authorities executed by a municipality in North Carolina are granted by the NC General Assembly.

The Town Council appoints various Advisory Boards and Administrative Boards to assist in the execution of policy decisions of the Council and to comply with NC law which requires the appointment of certain Boards. These include:

  • Louisburg Planning Board
  • Louisburg Board of Adjustment
  • Louisburg Historic Preservation Commission

North Carolina is well known in the United States for its professional local government management. Towns and cities in NC have enjoyed beneficial financial status as a result of the oversight of the NC Local Government Commission. Multiple state and federal agencies work closely with all municipalities in NC to assure that citizens are afforded the same opportunities in small towns that are often entitlements to larger communities.
