    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

Check out this week's report on how the Senators met in session this week, while House members took a furlough and did not meet in regular session. The House Ways and Means Committee adopted its version of the budget, while the Senate approved the bill that creates the new Executive Office of Health and Policy after the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control was split last year. Both chambers will be in regular session next week. 
​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.
