The Taichung City Government (Chinese: 台中市政府; pinyin: Táizhōng Shì Zhèngfǔ) is the local government of the Republic of China (Taiwan) that governs Taichung City.

History[edit]

Second Taichung City Hall

Taichung City Government was initially formed as provincial city government on 25 October 1945 after the handover of Taiwan from Japan to the Republic of China. The government became a special municipality on 25 December 2010 after the merge of Taichung County Government and Taichung City Government.[1]

Building[edit]

The first building of the city government, known as Taichung Shiyakusho, was constructed in 1911, when Taiwan was under Japanese rule. It has turned into a cultural center since 2016. The current Taichung City Hall was completed and opened on 10 October 2010.[2]
