Malacca City Council, officially known as the Historical Malacca City Council (Malay: Majlis Bandaraya Melaka Bersejarah, MBMB) is a local authority which administers Malacca City and other areas of Central Melaka District. It is responsible for public health and sanitation, cleanliness management, town planning, environmental protection and building control, social and economic development and general maintenance functions of urban infrastructure. The MBMB main headquarters is located at Graha Makmur in Ayer Keroh.
The Municipality of the Town and Fort of Malacca, 11 square kilometres (4.2 sq mi) wide, was established in 1824 by the British East India Company for the purpose of town planning, public order and collection of assessment rates. On 1 January 1977, the Municipality Authority and the Central Melaka Rural District Council (Majlis Daerah Luar Bandar Melaka Tengah) merged to form the Central Melaka Municipal Council (Majlis Perbandaran Melaka Tengah), with an administration area of 303 square kilometres (117 sq mi). The council later became known as the Malacca Municipal Council (Majlis Perbandaran Melaka) in 1987 and the Historical City of Malacca Municipal Council (Majlis Perbandaran Melaka Bandaraya Bersejarah, MPMBB) on 15 April 1989 when the federal government granted the Historical City title to the state of Malacca. The headquarters of the council was originally located at the building which now houses the People's Museum. The council obtained its present name and moved to the Graha Makmur Building in Ayer Keroh on 15 April 2003 when Malacca City was granted city status. On 1 January 2010, part of its area, covering 57.66 square kilometres (22.26 sq mi) was separated for the establishment of Hang Tuah Jaya Municipal Council (Majlis Perbandaran Hang Tuah Jaya, MPHTJ). But the addition of a new administration area covering 30.86 square kilometres (11.92 sq mi) which was created out of land reclamation, resulted in the council's area currently stands at 277 square kilometres (107 sq mi).
