About This Place
Tribune is a city in and the county seat of Greeley County, Kansas, United States. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 741.
The city is named after the New York Tribune, of which Horace Greeley of Chappaqua, New York was the editor.
On November 6, 2007, approximately 73% of voters in Tribune and in rural Greeley County approved a consolidation of the city and the county. Such a system has previously been used in Kansas only in the urbanized Wyandotte County, the location of Kansas City. The resulting government consists of a five-member commission with two members elected by city residents, two by rural residents, and one at-large. Similar to Wyandotte County, the only other consolidated city-county in the state, part of the county will not be included: Horace decided against consolidation. Members of the Unified Board of Supervisors will be elected in April 2008, and the governments will be unified in January 2009. A movement toward this consolidation had begun in 2004.
