Map of the United States with Missouri highlighted

Missouri is a state located in the Midwestern United States. In Missouri, cities are classified into three types: Class 3, Class 4, and those under constitutional charters. A few older cities are incorporated under legislative charters (Carrollton, Chillicothe, LaGrange, Liberty, Miami, Missouri City, and Pleasant Hill) which are no longer allowed; the level at which they incorporate is determined by their population when they incorporate. They do not change if they gain or lose in population, unless a vote is held by the people.

A municipality incorporates as a Class 4 city if the population is between 500 and 2,999 (under 500, it may incorporate as a village[1] – see list of villages in Missouri), it may incorporate as a Class 3 city if the population is between 3,000 and 29,999. There is more flexibility in government for Class 3 cities than Class 4.

Cities under constitution charters may operate under any form of municipal government if it is enacted in the city's charter.
