Short-Term vacation rentals

The Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) has approved Citrus County’s request to permit the operation of vacation rentals pursuant to the provisions of Executive Order 20-123 as issued by Governor Ron DeSantis on May 15. DBPR reviewed the County’s safety plan for vacation rental operations and established that Citrus County had provided the necessary steps for operation of vacation rentals at this time and approved the operation of vacation rentals in Citrus County effective immediately.

Inverness Parks

The City encourages visitors to enjoy its parks.  From wooded forests, a 46-mile paved trail, and lakeside vistas there is something for everyone.  Limited activities allow for CDC guidelines to be followed.  These include walking, biking, jogging, hiking, tennis, shuffleboard, pickleball and disc golf.  

City Boat Ramps

The City urges boaters to enjoy the lakes safely.  City boat ramps are open and an uptick in boating traffic is expected over the busy Memorial weekend.   City Inverness offers a reminder that Florida Fish and Wildlife Executive Order 20-13 rescinds FWC EO 20-09 related to recreational vessel anchoring and occupancy regulations for all waters of the state.
