I'm not sure that these exclusions are always correct. For a start, we need context and specific examples. I would almost certainly use 'located in' for a larger area, such as a country or state or province, but I suspect that there are cases in which 'located at' would be idiomatic for a smaller sub-division.Yes, that is correct. You never use "at" with a country, city, state, town, village, hamlet, province, region, area, county.
OK, so I recant:Located at is routinely used for street address, as well as for general descriptive terms such as "the south side of..." or "at the back of...". There are numerous web pages that use "located at" with village names in both Pakistani and Indian English.

The second one is not part of my City Council (we don't have City Governments) and actually I used to work there and don't think much of the standard of English used. They don't select only excellent English speakers to work at the City Council.You need to correct your city government:
