I mean :  When a mushroom town becomes a real city and needed a mayor?
Who decided of that? and who could vote?
It could be part of my next large multi players scenario.
I know territories could became states when they reached a number of inhabitants but I don't know for towns.

As far as i can see, once it made the jump from settlement to town (so inclusion of a church, also both towns and cities have mayors) their is no set way with possibilities including a vote by all adult (and presumably white) males or even just the general assent of the people in a town meeting in less 'civilised' parts.

Also mayors could be strong or relatively weak depending on a host of factors.

No idea really.  I do know that land could be bought or somehow acquired as a 'township' - now I'm wondering what sort of municipality rules might have applied, if any.  Curious question you've asked.

Sorry, my tortured mind, always has that kind of question.
I'll have to improvise.

There's always the "High Plains Drifter" option - local shopkeeps and others hire in a gunslinger to take care of the bad guys; gunslinger's terms are whatever he wants and so he appoints a new mayor (I know it was a sheriff in the film) ...

I had new ideas. You'll have a report after the 27th, where we play.
