Posted on 03/15/2020
To prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus Manatee County Utilities Department will close the lobby of its administration building located at 4410 66th Street West, Bradenton.

“The number of alternative methods of conducting business with the department minimizes any potential inconvenience to our customers and closing the lobby greatly reduces any chance of spreading the virus,” says Mike Gore, Utilities director.

Customers can make check and money order payments utilizing the drop box at the Utilities office and through the mail. Payments may also be made online using credit card, checking or savings accounts or with E-Bill through the customer’s financial institution. Payments by phone can be made by credit card and checking or savings accounts. Cash and money order payments can be made at any Amscot or Walmart location.

All other business with the Utilities Department can be conducted over the phone by calling, (941) 792-8811. This includes establishing new services.

Utilities also announced that E-scrap and Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collections scheduled for March 21 and April 4 have been cancelled. Regular garbage, recycling and yard waste collections will continue as normal.
