Yes, it's a real municipality.is this really a municipality???
Why? Because France is a very conservative country when it comes to administrative matters. They haven't even been able to merge the municipalities in the large cities yet (which is why the administrative City of Paris is still frozen in its 1860 limits which do not correspond to the real extent of Paris anymore... it's a bit as if NYC was still only the island of Manhattan administratively speaking). When Rochefourchat is left with no inhabitants, I don't know what will happen, maybe the prefect of the department will have to administer the municipality.Why havent a larger authority (state/province/federal) took actions to subordinate this area again to some other municipality?
