Mayor's Minute

A community investment information series from the City of Sumter, SC Mayor's Office.

 

The City of Sumter is committed to government accountability and transparency. Council Highlight notes are not official minutes of City Council (see here for official meeting minutes), rather a summary of what's happening in and around the City each month. The public is invited to all City Council Meetings and encouraged to voice their concerns or issues. Additionally, we also have an online Customer Service Form where you may ask a question or report an issue.
