Government

The City of Maquadena is merged with Bear County, and the city-county splits its functions between its two tiers. The local legislature operates in a two-tier manor, in which there are 15 Common Council members and 4 County Commissioners (with the weak mayor serving as a tie-breaking commissioner). The executive official is the mayor. In Maquadena, the mayor operates in a weak mayor-council hybrid government.

Maquadena-Bear County is an entirely separate jurisdiction from Maquadena County, the county containing all of the city's in-state suburbs.

Economy

The Maquadena metropolitan area is home to multiple companies, especially those related to food and agriculture. Two examples include Empire Soup Company and Golden Grains Cereal.

Just west of Maquadena is an airplane manufacturing plant.
