New Citizen Service Center is Now Open

The City of Walterboro is excited to open the doors of its new citizen service center. The city aquired the former First Federal Bank located at 300 Hampton Street and recently completed renovations, allowing all citizen and business services to be under one roof. The goal was to create a one-stop-shop that houses the general information desk, permits & licensing, the water department, the clerk of municipal court and building services. The opening of this facility is another step the city has taken to provide better customer service. Please come by and see the new center.
