CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Charleston Mayor Joseph P. Riley Jr., who has served as mayor longer than anyone in the city’s nearly 350-year history, is scheduled to give his last State of the City address.

The mayor is set to deliver the speech on Tuesday in City Hall to members of City Council and to a local television audience.

The mayor is expected to touch on the accomplishments of the last year and lay out plans for the next 12 months. During the coming year, the $142 million Gaillard Center is set to open. The performing arts center is the most expensive municipal project in Charleston history.

Riley is retiring at the end of the year after 40 years in office.
