History

The city is named after the New York Tribune, of which Horace Greeley of Chappaqua, New York was the editor.

On November 6, 2007, nearly 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.[4] 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.[5] 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.[4]
