A municipality is a type of administrative division in many countries that is typically smaller than a state or province and is responsible for local government. In some countries, such as the United States, a municipality is a city, town, or other incorporated area that is governed by a mayor and council. In other countries, such as Mexico, a municipality is a smaller administrative unit that is part of a larger state or province. Municipalities are typically responsible for providing services and infrastructure to their residents, such as schools, roads, and public utilities. The term “municipality” is derived from the Latin word “municipium,” which means “city.”
