This is a list of cities, villages and townships in Michigan, arranged in alphabetical order. In Michigan, townships are statutory units of government, meaning that they have only those powers expressly provided or fairly implied by state law. Cities and villages are vested with home rule powers, meaning that they can do almost anything that is not expressly prohibited by law. Cities have greater freedom to operate independently; however, cities are also required by law to fulfill certain governmental positions--meaning that cities generally require a higher level of taxation to support the increased obligations. Villages are not required to provide the same level of services as a city and share responsibility for some services with the township. ...more on Wikipedia about "List of cities, villages, and townships in Michigan"
