The first municipal service in Antalya implemented during the Ottoman Empire.

Accountant Abdullah Efendi was the person who undertook the municipal services in Antalya, which was a sanjak of Konya at that period.
The first municipality concept in the modern sense in the Ottoman period was created after the Tanzimat Fermanı (Imperial Edict of Reorganization), inspired by the allies during the Crimean War. Municipalism was reorganized with the law named "The Dersaadet Municipal Law" enacted in 1913. Encümen-i Emanet was established instead of the Şehremini Council. With the Republican Period, municipal affairs were included in the scope of in the duties of the governors.
