Each department has a capital city or prefecture which includes its institutions. This capital is often the largest city of the department.

The removal of one or more local levels is being debated in France for several years and especially the option to remove department level.
For now, the Balladur committee dealing with the reform of local government did not adopt this proposal, so there is currently no change at the departmental level.
