Our Municipal Complex, located at 203 College Street in Florence, houses the Water Department, Planning and Zoning, and the Parks and Recreation Department.  The Police Department side of the building also includes the Boardroom, which is used for municipal Court, and for City Board meetings, and the Court Services office.

City Board meetings are held on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. The public is welcome to attend these meetings, however, if you wish to address the Board on any matter, you should contact City Clerk Linda Wigley by Monday to be put on the agenda.
