From Wikipedia:

“Special-purpose districts or special district governments in the United States are independent governmental units that exist separately from, and with substantial administrative and fiscal independence from, general purpose local governments such as county, municipal, and township governments.[1] As defined by the U.S. Census Bureau, the term special district governments excludes school districts.[1] In 2007, the U.S. had more than 39,000 special district governments.”

Note special district in action, a meeting.

Note that there is nobody else at the meeting for the whole duration of the meeting.

Note the following of rules of the two paper-pushers.

Note government bureaucracy at work.

In "Last Week Tonight" John Oliver told some information about special districts in the USA. Here is one example of the Mosquito Control District Meeting in Litchfield. Be aware that they are in an empty room all the time. Both have had 0 views just a couple of days ago.

Admire their sticking to the rules. And have fun.
