COVID-19 Update April 13

COVID Update

City Services

Inverness City Hall is closed to general public access. Please call (352) 726-2611 for an appointment with department staff or to discuss city services. The City will continue to provide services such as trash pick-up, water, sewer, public works projects, building permits, public safety, and City Administration. Utility payments may be made at and at the drop box in front of City Hall.

Whispering Pines City Park

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Parks department continues to work on beautification projects in the city’s 280 acre Whispering Pines Park. These projects include: upgraded irrigation systems, playground improvements, and major renovation of the ballfields.  Additionally, the five walking trails will be cleared of brush, and re-defined with new trail markers.  Plans are underway to improve the Disk golf play area as well.

The splash pad is experiencing a “mini-renovation” with shade covering, and painting of the two water features. Also in process, are repairs to the city pool decking and pavers. City Manager Eric Williams notes “This was a great opportunity to take advantage of the mandatory park closure due to the Governor’s Executive order.  These repairs and improvements are conducted “in-house” by park staff and we couldn’t be more pleased.  We are looking forward to sharing the result with our community once the parks reopen.”  


Due to the holiday weekend, the city boat ramps experienced an increase in boat traffic. A successful and safe experience was due in part to boaters following proper guidelines in compliance with Fish and Wildlife Executive Order 20-09.  It’s critically important that boaters continue to practice social distancing. All recreational boats must be at least 50 feet apart. Each boat must not have more than 10 people on board. The Citrus County Sheriff’s Office and Florida Fish and Wildlife officers will continue to have a presence at the boat ramps and on the water to enforce the distancing rules.
