A statutory city (German: Statutarstadt in Austria, or Czech: Statutární město in the Czech Republic) is a municipal corporation with town privileges of city status, which also accomplishes tasks on an intermediate level of administration. Statutory cities therefore are not incorporated into the Austrian or Czech districts resp., but form urban districts in their own right.
Famous quotes containing the word city:
“Lo! Death has reared himself a throne
In a strange city lying alone
Far down within the dim West,
Where the good and the bad and the worst and the best
Have gone to their eternal rest.”
—Edgar Allan Poe (18091849)
