Consolidated city-county

In United States local government, a consolidated city-county is a city and county that have a merged government, and is considered both a city and a county under the laws of the State. This is not to be confused with a independent city, which is a city that doesn't belong to any county in the state. A similar arrangement used to exist in the United Kingdom where it was known as a county borough.
