How Are Florida State, County And Municipal Governments Organized?
The entire area of the state of Florida is encompassed by county governments except for the consolidated area of Duval County and the city of Jacksonville, which is designated as the city of Jacksonville. Jacksonville is counted as a municipal government, rather than as a county government, in U.S. Census Bureau statistics.
Although the metropolitan government of Miami-Dade County performs many municipal-type services and is treated as a “municipality” in some Florida statutes, it is designated as a county and is counted as a county government in Census Bureau statistics.
Each county government in the state is governed by a board of county commissioners. Under general law, county governments may adopt home rule charters. These charters can include a broad range of powers.
SUBCOUNTY GENERAL PURPOSE GOVERNMENTS
Municipal governments in Florida are the cities, towns, and villages. A municipality is established through passage of a local bill by the legislature to enact its charter, with the exception of municipalities within Miami-Dade County. Municipal governments were given home-rule powers by general law in 1972.
The board of commissioners of Miami-Dade County may provide a method for establishing new municipalities within the county and prescribe their jurisdiction and powers. All cities, towns, and villages in Miami-Dade County are counted as separate municipal governments.
Under general law, the minimum population for incorporation is 1,500 persons in counties with a population of 75,000 or fewer, and 5,000 persons in counties with a population of more than 75,000.
The average population density per acre required for incorporation, unless extraordinary conditions can be shown, is 1.5 persons or more per acre. The new municipality must also be a minimum distance of two miles from existing municipalities in the county.
Florida has no township governments.
