To ensure you have the latest information and guidance, we recommend visiting the CDC and the Florida Department of Health websites. In addition, for any questions or concerns, please contact the agencies with the following information.

CORE MUNICIPAL SERVICES
The City of Riviera Beach has declared a local state of
emergency. This declaration affords additional latitudes and
flexibilities s for city staff to respond to the public's concerns
associated with the pandemic caused by the coronavirus
The City Hall and the Public Works Facility will remain open;
however, a limited number of people will be granted access
at a time.
Public Safety will remain staffed as usual. However, other
city operations will most likely have modified operational
hours, and face-to-face interactions will be prohibited.
Water Utility Services: The City understands the significance of proper hygiene procedures as directed by federal and state agencies to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. So we would like to ensure that all water utility customers have uninterrupted access to water to protect themselves and others.
Therefore, effective March 15, 2020, utility disconnects on delinquent accounts have been suspended for 60 days, ending on May 15, 2020.
Reconnection fees and late fees will also be waived during this 60-day period. Customers should note that monthly fees and charges will continue to accrue to utility accounts during this period. The temporary suspension does not eliminate or reduce monthly accruals or previous outstanding balances. Customers will remain responsible for these amounts. Though we encourage customers to keep payments current, we understand that this may not be possible for all customers. Please trust that staff will work with individual customers who have high balances through the creation of extended payment terms.
In order to protect the community and staff and follow
guidance provided by the CDC, all visitor s will be required
to take a brief Entrance Screening before entering any city
