In 1485 King Richard III granted Llandovery a Royal Charter which gave the town Borough status. Under this charter a Sergeant-at-Mace was chosen by the Bailiff and a second selected by the Burgesses of the town. Today, Llandovery is proud to have retained these offices.
The Bailiff's duties were taken over by the Mayor albeit without magistrate powers. Elected Councillors represent the townspeople and a Town Clerk is responsible for administration.
The Town Council meet in the chamber above the Town Hall in what is now also the library.
