Municipal government[edit]

Arkansas municipalities are divided into three categories based on population.[2]

  • City of the First Class: 2500+ population
  • City of the Second Class: 500-2,499 population
  • Incorporated Town: 499 or fewer population

Arkansas does not use villages or civil townships as possible designations for its minor civil divisions.[3] In Arkansas, a municipality may extend into multiple counties.
