It is my pleasure, on behalf of the citizens of Allendale, to welcome you to our town.  We hope you will find this community just as friendly and enjoyable as we have!

Our citizens continue to work together to accomplish our goal of keeping Allendale whole.  The many volunteers of our Neighborhood Associations, Parks, and Planning & Zoning Boards and Commissions show that commitment.

A shared goal of the Mayor, City Council and staff is the dedication to improving the quality of life within the city. The best way to get to know and understand your city government is to attend a City Council meeting. The City Council meetings are held at City Hall, 1296 Main Street South on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m.  Your Mayor and Council Members are dedicated public servants who want to hear what you have to say.

Again, we are glad to have you in the community!  If there is any information you would like to know about our city, please do not hesitate to call City Hall at (803)584-4619 during regular office hours.
