COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information and Updates

March16, 2020

To minimize exposure of COVID-19 and to help protect visitors and our employees, The Welaka Town Hall will be closed to the public until further notice. 

Town staff will continue to perform their duties and be present to assist you via telephone or e-mail during normal business hours.

This is being done to promote the concept of "social distancing;” reducing the number of in-person interactions that each of us has with each other which will reduce the chances of spreading and transmitting the COVID-19 virus.

Residents and others will be able to pay bills by check or money order by placing the bills, along the checks and/or money orders, in an envelope and dropping them off in the dropbox to the right hand side of the doors in front of Town Hall. In addition, payments can be made via the Town's web site ( click on "Online Payments" - both credit cards and EFTs (using your checking account can be used). If your only option is cash and you cannot get a money order, please contact the Utility Department (386-467-9800, option 4) to make arrangements for a cash payment.

If you need copies of documents such as birth certificates, building permits, assessor records, etc., call the and the staff will work out a method for you to obtain the necessary documents.  Please call 386-467-9800 for Town Hall.

If you need to file documents, applications for permits, etc., please contact the proper department and a solution will be worked out to make that happen.

Welaka Town Hall is operational, via telephone, email and/or the night drop box. We will do our best to still accommodate the public with water/sewer payments, building permits and other needs that arise.
