    Civility. Respect. Solutions.

    In 2021, our board of directors decided to make restoring civility an ongoing top priority for the organization. Since then, we have been working to offer our elected officials the resources, workshops and other tools that will help them listen, learn and de-escalate heated situations. We want our cities and towns to exemplify good governance and civil behavior.

    The Municipal Association of South Carolina, representing the state’s 271 incorporated cities and towns, remains dedicated to the principles of its founding in 1930 — to pursue initiatives that cities and towns can carry out more efficiently and effectively together through the Association than they can individually.

What's New

​The Association recognizes and encourages innovations and excellence in local government through its Achievement Awards. Each spring, the Municipal Association accepts award entries from member municipalities. Winners will be honored at the Association's Annual Meeting.
The House met in session on Tuesday and Wednesday and took action on all of the bills on its calendar. The Senate met in committee and subcommittee but not in statewide session. Both the House and Senate will meet in regular session next week beginning on Tuesday at noon. The crossover deadline was Wednesday and the last day of the regular session is Thursday, May 9.
​The Association developed a statewide online portal for business license renewals. The online portal is for renewals only. New business licenses will still be issued by the city or town. State law requires this system to be hosted by the SC Revenue and Fiscal Affairs Office. To use this free software, municipalities must adopt the standard business license practices.
