The Municipal Association of South Carolina offers city officials and staff access to publications covering a wide variety of local government topics. This includes the Annexation Handbook
This guide offers an overview of the three methods of annexing contiguous property provided for by state law. It also takes a look at the policy considerations of annexation, including whether a specific annexation is in the financial best interest of a city or town; public perception of the process; and zoning considerations for properties being annexed. The handbook also provides sample forms, notices, resolutions and other documents used in the process.
