City DepartmentsThe City of Sumter exists to provide our citizens an environment of opportunity and excellent public services.


We do this by:


  • Investing in our people and infrastructure through professional employee development, workforce training, economic development, community infrastructure and community-wide public events.

  • Inviting and fostering relationships with visitors, active duty military and their families, industrial clientele and young professionals.

  • Serving our citizenry by providing connections and care whenever possible through proactive public safety programs, quality and reliable utilities, sanitation, planning, building and inspection services, public health initiatives and additional recreational venues and programs.


City residents are invited to attend all City Council Meetings to voice their concerns or issues. Additionally, we also have an online Customer Service Form where you may ask a question, leave a comment or report a concern.


Thank you!
