North Carolina-Incorporated Municipality-February 9

North Carolina People, Places, and Things-February 9

I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.

In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special.

How do you get to be a town, city, or village in North Carolina? I went online to find out.

In North Carolina at city, town or village is referred to as an Incorporated Municipality.

An incorporated municipality means the North Carolina General Assembly (or, in a few cases, a former state agency known as the Municipal Board of Control) has granted a charter authorizing the establishment of a municipal corporation (government) and outlining the powers, authority and responsibilities of the municipal government. Some of these are specified in the charter and some are authorized by state statutes.

There are 552 municipalities in North Carolina and 100 countiesthese are the general purpose local governments. In addition, there are some special districts providing particular services such as water and sewer services.

Throughout the state, there are many unincorporated areas or communities, but these are not towns, cities or villages. Examples in Robeson County NC  would be Barker Ten Mile, Shannon, and Prospect.
