Since 1968, the control center of the City Administration has been in the 22 floor City Hall Building from the architect Roland Ostertag.
Most of the city departments are brought together under one roof with a community center, tourist information and the offices of the lobbies. A larger and smaller hall offer space for meetings of the city council, the city bodies and conferences. A further large part of the administration is found in the "Rathaus Nord" across the street at Lauterstrasse 2.
The head of the City Administration is the Executive Board which in Kaiserslautern consists of the Lord Mayor and three counsilors. All departements are assigned to them.
