municipal borough

A city or town in England and Wales with an elected town council consisting of a mayor, aldermen and councillors.

The increase in the number may perhaps in a great degree be attributed to the increased proportion of apprehensions consequent upon the extensive establishment of an efficient Police in the municipal boroughs, and to the greater facilities in criminal proceedings afforded by the extended grants of local sessions.
