The Town of Louisburg is managed on a day to day basis by the Town Administrator. The Town Administrator, or otherwise known in some jurisdictions as the Town Manager, is appointed solely at the pleasure of the Louisburg Town Council. The Administrator is responsible for the daily operation and management of all aspects of the Town of Louisburg.

The Town Administrator works directly with the Town Council to professionally advise and provide pertinent information as the Council develops local policy. The relationship between the Town Council and Administrator is critical to achieving efficient and effective service provision and compliance with all state and federal regulations. A clear understanding of roles and adherence to those roles of the two entities is critical in the sound operation of municipal government. The Town Council creates and establishes policy based on any number of factors and the Town Administrator is responsible for the implementation and management of those policies through program and service provision.
