Freetown City Council - Established 1872

Message from Mayor Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr

Dear Residents of Freetown

On behalf of Freetown City Council (FCC), it gives me great pleasure to be able to welcome you to our first website. It is designed to help us better communicate with you – the city’s residents, businesses and visitors.

It is also intended to make it easier for you to find essential information on our services, activities and programmes, as well as regular news updates; and because we welcome your comments, advice and suggestions, we have included a ‘Have Your Say” page.

Freetown is a vibrant, historic and beautiful city that successfully attracts thousands of visitors each year, both for business and tourism. It is home to over 1 million people, representing 40 percent of Sierra Leone’s urban population. It is our country’s capital, principal port, commercial centre, and largest city of Sierra Leone. It hosts the national government’s legislative, executive and judicial branches, foreign embassies and consulates, and has the added distinction of hosting Fourah Bay College, the oldest university in West Africa

I am proud to be Freetown’s elected Mayor. I continue to thank God and to thank you for giving me the opportunity to lead you on this journey, so that together we can transform Freetown and see it achieve its full potential.
