Did you know? In France, the town hall is the administrative apparatus of the city or township that is housed in the building known as the town hall. It also includes the deliberation room of the municipal council, the place where marriages are celebrated, as well as various services such as the registry office, the land registry, urban planning, the municipal police, etc. In the general code of local authorities, the term refers to the seat of the municipality. In practice, large municipalities often use the term “town hall”, the term “mairie” referring rather to the municipal administration attached to the mayor. (source Wikipedia) In Paris, there is a city hall and therefore a mayor per arrondissement, so the city of Paris has 20 arrondissement mayors and one main mayor, the Mayor of Paris, Ms. Anne Hidalgo.
