The City of Panama City is excited to announce that its new City Hall Office located at 501 Harrison Avenue will open for business at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, February 4, 2019.
All city offices currently located at the A.D. Harris Learning Village plus the Accounting, Code Enforcement, Community Development, Leisure Services, Purchasing and Utilities (Administration) Departments will be moving into City Hall.
With 60,000 square feet, the new building provides space for city departments to be consolidated under one roof in order to better serve the needs of our Citizens. The new offices have also been configured to provide convenience to Citizens, such as the new “Community Services” office which will allow citizens to access Code Enforcement, Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), Community Development and Planning services in one space.
The moving process will begin on Friday, February 1, 2019 which will cause some city services to be limited on Friday; although, a representative for Utility Billing will be able to assist customers from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the A.D. Harris Learning Village.
Customers may also pay their utility bill through the drop-off box which is located on Mercer Avenue next to the United States Post Office and the city’s website at www.pcgov.org.
Parking for the new City Hall is available in the spaces along Harrison Avenue and in parking lots off Grace Avenue behind the building. The portable offices for the Bay County Chamber of Commerce, Destination Panama City, Martin Theater and Downtown Improvement Board that were set up in one of City Hall’s parking lots will remain in place for the foreseeable future.
The City Commission will continue to hold its meetings at the Bay County Government Center, 840 W. 11th Street, while boards such as the Planning Board and Board of Adjustment will hold their meetings at City Hall in the meeting space on the bottom floor.
