How Are Kansas State, County And Municipal Governments Organized?
The entire area of the state of Kansas is encompassed by county governments, except for the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City and the Unified Government of Greeley County. The county governing body is called the board of county commissioners.
The Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City is counted as a municipal government, rather than as a county government, in U.S. Census Bureau statistics on governments. The Unified Government of Greeley County is the result of the consolidation of Greeley County and the city of Tribune and is also counted as a municipal government, rather than a county government, in Census Bureau statistics.
SUBCOUNTY GENERAL PURPOSE GOVERNMENTS
Municipal GovernmentsAll of the municipal governments in Kansas are designated as cities. Cities are divided by general law into the following size classes:
- Cities of the first class-15,000 inhabitants or more.
- Cities of the second class-2,000 to 14,999 inhabitants.
- Cities of the third class-fewer than 2,000 inhabitants.
Cities of the second class may continue as such until they reach a population of 25,000, when they are required by law to become cities of the first class; similarly, cities of the third class may remain as such until they reach a population of 5,000.
A 1963 law, as amended in 2011, specifies a minimum population requirement of 250 or more inhabitants for incorporation or 250 platted lots each served by water and sewer lines owned by a nonprofit corporation. Also, a territory designated as a national landmark by the Congress of the United States may incorporate without meeting other requirements for incorporation.
Population in existing cities may fall below designated population minimums for their class designation without changing class. The Kansas Constitution allows cities the power of home rule. Cities of the third class exist within township areas, while cities of the first and second class exist outside the area of any township.
The entire areas of Kansas are covered by townships, except for areas where cities of the first class and second class exist. If a township government becomes inactive, its activities are assumed by the respective county government; the inactive townships are not counted as governments in Census Bureau statistics. All or only part of the townships within a county area may become inactive.
