Lancaster County Council
Lancaster County is a Council/Administrator form of government set up under the laws of the State of South Carolina. This means that the Council who is elected by the residents of the County sets the overall policy for the County and the appointed Administrator is charged with the day-to-day operations of the County to ensure that the Council's policies are implemented.
The Council meets the second and fourth Monday of each month. The public portion of the meeting begins at 6:00 PM unless a holiday forces a move of the normally scheduled date. In addition, from time to time there may be special meetings and workshops called by the Council. The public is welcome at all meetings of the Council.
