In 1918, the name was changed to Municipal District of Tomahawk. The MD was empowered by the Provincial Government to provide for local public works and roads, public welfare, sanitation and health, and protection of persons and property. In 1940 the MD of Tomahawk was consolidated into the County of Parkland.
From 1940 to 1977, the records were held by Peter Malainey of Tomahawk, Alberta.
