Note that you can be in only one municipality at a time. Even if a borough, for example, is surrounded by
a township, the two are separate jurisdictions and have different sets of elected leaders. Boroughs have generally formed when
villages or towns within a township grew and decided to seek separate governance; they incorporated. For that reason,
sometimes a borough and/or city has the same name as an adjacent township.
