As of Noon today, the Utility Billing Lobby will be closed until further notice. We ask that you use the drive through for any matters regarding Utility Billing such as paying bills or starting your service. In addition to the drive through option, you can pay online at http://www.apopka.net/513/Pay or through Amscot (Cash payments only. There is a $1.50 convenience fee for using this service).

Our City Hall lobby remains open, however, we encourage you to limit all unnecessary visits. If the matter can be handled by phone or email, we strongly recommend you do so out of an abundance of caution for you and our staff.
