The Mayor and Council are striving to make Pamplico an even safer and attractive town for all current and future residents, as well as a business friendly municipality. The Downtown Streetscape Project, pictured below, was completed in 2010 with grant assistance from the SC Commerce Department.
The Town of Pamplico is a South Carolina municipality operating under the Council form of government. The Town Council is comprised of the Mayor and six Council Members. Council meets the third Monday of each month at 6 p.m. at the Council Chambers, 201 River Road.
