City of Venice reopens City Hall to the public


City of Venice
Due to the start of the Fire Station 1/City Hall improvement project, visitors to City Hall should be aware they can ONLY enter the building through the main doors facing West Venice Avenue. The Cashier’s Office south entrance, near the Fire Station, is blocked off due to construction activity. Parking is available on the west side of the building and near the front entrance along W. Venice Ave.

Visitors to City Hall and other City facilities are encouraged to wear masks when interacting with staff. Citizens will also notice new plexiglass barriers at public-facing counters at City Hall including the Cashier’s Office for utility bill and other payments, and the Building Department for permits. Freestanding stations offering hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes are also available.

If you need to meet with a City Hall staff member, we ask that you make an appointment in advance by calling 941-486-2626. The staff member will then meet you at a station in the lobby with plexiglass barriers offering protection for both you and City Hall employees.

City Hall is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
