It consists of the mayors of the member administrative districts and also, depending on the administrative district's size, on further members of the administrative districts' representative bodies.

It is a point of principle that, in the State of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the Borough Councils are managed by the voluntary Borough Chief Officers. The Borough of Crivitz is managed by a Borough Chief Officer employed full-time. For this reason, a voluntary Borough Committee Chairman runs Crivitz Borough Committee's sessions. This function is exercised by the Mayor of Plate Administrative District, Mr Andreas Zapf.
Committees run by the Borough Committee
The Main Committee decides on matters that have been passed on to it by the Borough Committee. It prepares the Borough Committee's decisions in human-resource and organisational terms. The Main Committee consists of the Borough Chief Officer and nine Borough Committee members. Ms Isbarn, Borough Chief Officer, chairs this committee.
The Main Committee's sessions are open to the public.
The Finance Committee acts in a consultative capacity. It prepares the Borough's budget by-laws and the decisions necessary for implementing the budget plan. It consists of five Borough Committee members. It is chaired by Mr Hönicke, Borough Committee member from Leezen.
The Finance Committee's sessions are open to the public.
The Auditing Committee is a mandatory committee. It must be formed by the Borough Committee. It checks the annual accounts and accompanies the Borough's budgetary management activities. The Auditing Committee consists of five Borough Committee members and four local residents with relevant specialist knowledge. The committee is chaired by Mr Merthen, a local resident from Sukow. Instead of forming their own auditing committee, the member administrative districts have the possibility to make avail of this Auditing Committee run by the Borough Committee. With the exception of the town of Crivitz, all member administrative districts make use of this opportunity.
The sessions of the Auditing Committee are not open to the public.
