Unified Greeley County

As of January 1, 2009, the governments of Greeley County and the City of Tribune unified to form the Unified Government of Greeley County. Five newly-elected supervisors worked diligently during an eight month transition period, ensuring county and city business would continue to run smoothly after the union.

Greeley County has long been ahead of the curve in organizational efficiency. It was the first Kansas county to consolidate its schools as well as its road department. It also boasts unified fire and police departments.

The City of Horace maintains a separate city council to manage its affairs.
