Communities in DeKalb County

     What makes a municipality a city or a town?

All municipalities are originally incorporated as towns.  When a town's population exceeds 2,000, residents may choose, by referendum, to become a city.  A city is governed by a mayor and a common council, while a town is governed by a town council.  Towns may hire a town manager.   
    Cities are classified by their population:
    First Class 250,000 and over
    Second Class 35,000 to 250,000
    Third Class Under 35,000
    Indianapolis is the only City in Indiana of the first class.   Cities of the second class are:  Fort Wayne, Gary, Evansville, South Bend, Hammond, Muncie, Anderson, Terre Haute, Bloomington, Kokomo, Lafayette, Richmond, Elkhart, Mishawaka, East Chicago, New Albany, Michigan City, and Marion.
Towns are not classified; currently, their populations range from under 100 persons to over 25,000.
