A town is a human settlement that falls somewhere in between a city and a village in terms of size and population. While smaller than cities, towns usually have their own local government, which is responsible for managing the town’s affairs and providing essential services such as waste management, water supply, and public safety. Towns typically have a well-defined central area with commercial, residential, and industrial zones. They may have limited infrastructure, including transportation networks and public amenities, but are often more organized and cohesive than villages. The size of a town can vary significantly depending on the region, country, and local circumstances.
