Cities & Villages

While counties are limited to performing only functions assigned to them by state law, cities & villages have “home rule” authority under the state Constitution. This means that cities & villages essentially have infinite powers except for that which is restricted by state law, while counties have no powers except for those delegated to them by state law.

“A good politician is quite as unthinkable as an honest burglar.”
