About Our Form of Government
The City of Livingston operates under the commission-manager form of government, consisting of an elected 5 member commission and a city manager appointed by the commission. The city manager is responsible to the commission for the administration of all local government affairs authorized by law. City commission members are elected at large and on a non-partisan basis. Commission members are elected for four (4) year overlapping terms of office. The Livingston City Commission is the legislative and policy-setting branch of local government in our community.
