The Florida League of Cities is the united voice for Florida’s municipal governments. Its goals are to serve the needs of Florida's cities and promote local self-government. Florida’s city officials came together as a group of municipal governments for the first time in 1922. Growing from a small number of cities and towns, our membership now represents more than 400 cities, towns and villages in the Sunshine State. The League is the premier provider of many products and services developed especially for Florida’s cities.
