Starting Monday, May 18th, Pine Island City Hall and License Bureau will be open by appointment only. Only 1 individual will be allowed at each appointment unless approval is granted prior to your appointment from City Hall staff.
The License Bureau will be doing title transfers on vehicles, ATV's, boats, trailers, and motorcycles by appointment only. All tab renewal will still be done by drop box which is located to the right of the front doors labeled City of Pine Island. Please remember to write your insurance information on all renewal slips and place them in an envelope with a check or money order made out to Deputy Registrar #147.
City Hall will be taking appointments for any specialized city business, such as permitting. It is still encouraged that any business that can be taken care of via phone or email continues to do so. This includes water payments, which can be dropped in our drop box, mailed, paid online, or paid over the phone.
Please call City Hall (356-4591) or the License Bureau (356-4904) to schedule your appointment or ask any questions. Once you have scheduled an appointment with staff, please wait by the front doors and someone will be there to let you in at your scheduled time.
