More on Government

One form of local government is that of a county government. States are divided into counties and each county has one or more ruling legislative bodies that are considered part of local government. Maryland, for instance has 23 counties. Maryland would be run firstly by the federal government, then through the state government as well as the numerous county governments. The next smaller division inside of these county governments are municipal governments. These are any small area of population that a small ruling legislative body is in charge of. The size of a municipality can vary from that of less then 100 people, to a large as 8 million, as seen in New York City. The key difference in power division on this scale is, although federalism defines a clear balance between federal and state, municipalities are only given the powers the state has granted them. Generally, cities, towns, villages, and more centralized populated areas are those who have municipal governments. These governments have a variety of services, which they must provide for their citizens. These range from Parks and Recreation all the way to both the Fire and Police departments. Despite which type you discuss, all of these lesser then state governments are still local governments.
