Directory of ICMA-Recognized Local Governments

The ICMA recognition process identifies those local governments which by ordinance, charter or other legal document have established positions of professional authority. Recognition means the community is identified as one that provides a legal framework conducive to the practice of professional management. The criteria related to the council-manager government category are less flexible than those for the general management category. The reasons for this derive from the historical significance and the nature of the council-manager form.
