From the Mayor's Desk

MayorHello, I'm Mayor Joe Riley. I hope that you will find the information and services provided on this website to be useful.

The City of Charleston is a progressive and energetic city and our goal is to provide our residents with the best service a city can provide and our visitors with the best vacation or business trip that a city can provide.
Charleston is a special and unique city. The combination of our unequaled beauty, warm hospitality, and unique public spaces provide a wonderful backdrop for residents and visitors. Through careful conservation, creative and innovative financing, and meticulous planning, Charleston is a city that celebrates a rich history. Charleston was the first city in the country to enact a preservation ordinance. We have an active and ongoing interest in the protection and restoration of our buildings, which tell the story of our past.
Keeping an eye to the future, we have set goals that make the livability and quality of life in Charleston the best in the nation. We work diligently to keep our city the best place in the country to work, live, and play. Check back regularly to see the changes and new information that will be available to you.

If you have any suggestions, questions or comments, please contact me by email. Thank you for your interest.
