According to ICMA's form of government statistics (2012), there are 414 cities that operate under the council-manager form of government. You can review other population ranges in the attached document. Hope this helps.

Using 2010 Census population, the number is 460. The Municipal Yearbook has some errors. My dataset also has a higher number of municipalities than ICMA (I include towns and townships that operate as municipalities).
One point of clarification, I looked at the Yearbooks again, they do have many of the towns and townships included. I don't know why they have a lower number of municipalities. Maybe they are using Census 2000 figures for population.
