contentsCarthage MOads



Carthage is served by a dedicated group of officials, constantly striving to provide a high quality of life for its residents. A mayor, city council and city staff serves the people of Carthage. Major city departments include Administration, Parks and Recreation, Public Safety, and Public Works. For more information on Carthage government, please visit


The Carthage Police Department and Carthage Fire Department work together to maintain a safe environment and serve the community. As part of the anti-drugs message the departments promote throughout the year, an annual MudStock Festival is held each summer. The event, which is open to the public, drives home the message to stay clean on the inside as kids spend the afternoon playing on a man-made mud obstacle course.
