The Town of Bloomfield serves more than 21,000 people who live, work and play in Connecticut's most diverse community in the state.
The Town is operated under the Council-Manager form of government. The Town Council is Bloomfield's elected legislative body, consisting of a volunteer nine member Town Council board elected by the public every two years. Their primary responsibility is to set local policy, approve the budget, and determine the tax rate.
The Town Council appoints a full-time Town Manager to carry out the policies it establishes and to oversee the day-to-day administrative operations of town government. The Town Manager is also responsible for preparing the budget and hiring and firing personnel. Each town department is managed by a Department Director, who report directly to the Town Manager.
Citizen participation is very important and is achieved through various methods, including the election process, serving on one of many advisory boards and commissions, speaking at council meetings and other public hearings, and personal interaction with council members and other town officials.
Persons who are hearing impaired and need services of an interpreter at a Town meeting must notify the Town of Bloomfield ADA Coordinator, Human Resource Department, at least two (2) weeks in advance of the meeting date. HR can be reached at (860) 769-3544 or by email.
