In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, City Hall and all other city facilities are closed to the public effective noon March 20, 2020 – until further notice.

Indian River County had its first case reported last night, it is critical each of us do our part to reduce community spread in order to help slow the transmission of the virus to allow our medical community the time it needs to prepare.

During this pandemic, we all have the responsibility to social distance – which means limiting all in-person social interactions as much as possible. Experts agree that staying physically apart is critical if we want to reduce the strain on our health care system and slow the spread of this virus to save lives.

Beginning March 20, 2020 City departments are asking members of the public to conduct business remotely. Please use email or phones for questions and correspondence. Emailing is the most effective way to communicate during this time, and our staff will respond to your questions as soon as possible.

Directions for how you may contact our City departments during this closure are listed below.

Many of these temporary procedures are being put in place at the directive of our Federal and State government.

We also take directives from the County Health Department to make these decisions.

The Golf Course and Boat Ramps will remain open.
