North Charleston dedicates its new home

Hundreds of citizens came out to be a part of history as Mayor Summey and City Council dedicated North Charleston’s third City Hall on Sunday, September 20, 2009.

The Open House allowed the citizens of North Charleston an opportunity to explore their City Hall. As Mayor Summey expressed, “City Hall belongs to the citizens that this government serves, which is very important to remember.” He continued, “We wanted an occasion for the public to visit their government’s new home, so they could appreciate it as much as we do.”

United States Congressman Henry Brown was among the dignitaries in attendance. Congressman Brown presented a proclamation to commemorate North Charleston’s new City Hall, and promised to deliver a flag being flown over the United States Capital Building during the opening ceremony.

City Hall is a very functional, state of the art facility that allows for more accommodating service for the people and businesses of the City of North Charleston. Every department except Public Works is now housed under one roof.

The North Charleston City Hall is officially dedicated to the citizens of North Charleston.
