Incorporated municipalities in Washington are designated as either a city or a town. There are 281 incorporated areas in the state, and these are spread across 39 counties. Broken down further, municipalities are designated as first class cities, second class cities, towns, unclassified cities and code cities. Ten cities with populations exceeding 10,000 that operate under a home rule charter are first class cities, while nine second class cities are designated and have to have a population of over 1,500. The cities that do not fall into these classes are unclassified. Towns have populations that fall below 1,500. Three types of government are authorized for cities: Commission, Mayor-Council, and Council-Manager.
