On April 1, 2020, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order Number 20-91 for Floridians to shelter in place.  The Executive Order would apply to all persons, except those that are essential personnel that provide life sustaining goods and services to the public.  Effective on Monday, April 6, 2020, the Administrative Department of City Hall will be closed to the public, with exception to personnel that will be available to answer phones from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM, on a rotating basis, Monday through Friday. The Administrative Department Personnel will be working from home, until further notice. The Utility Departments will be available to respond to emergencies, Monday through Friday, with standby coverage throughout the weekend.  Citizens are requested to pay utility bills on-line at or use the City’s depository box located on the east side of City Hall. For your convenience in the use of the depository, City Hall will provide payment envelopes that are located at the depository location.  The City of Madison will continue to do everything possible to deliver services to our citizens.  In the event that you have difficulty with a utility need, please feel to call the City Manager, Jerome Wyche, at (850) 464-8850.

As each day goes by, the world as we knew it changes sometimes, almost within the hour.  The pandemic is continually spreading , worldwide, nationwide and even state-wide.  The City of Madison will do everything possible to serve our citizens and demonstrate compassion for those that will feel the financial impact from COVID-19.  Our County has not had a positive report of COVID -19, but, the odds are that we will eventually have some. In an effort to assist the citizens of Madison, the City will waive all late fees and will not do any turn-off of utilities until this contagious episode is behind us.  Once again, citizens are urged to pay on-line at or use the depository to make their payments.  One additional consideration is to get the right amount of change when using the depository, which will limit the need to enter City Hall.  Please continue to practice the information provided by the Communicable Disease Clinic (CDC).

The City of Madison, with a population of just over 3,000, was designated as one of the “Best Little Towns in Florida” by VISIT FLORIDA, and serves as the county seat for county government. For over 60 years, the city has served as home for North Florida Community College and as an out-campus for St. Leo University. Downtown Madison is filled with quaint gift shops, antique stores, outdoor shops and nice eateries. The downtown area is overflowing with classic 150 to nearly 200 year old homes and buildings.

In the heart of downtown Madison is Four Freedoms Park. The park is a beautifully landscaped city-block area containing a large gazebo and the Four Freedoms monument. This famous monument honors Colin P. Kelley, a former Madison County resident, recognized as the first U.S. hero of World War II and awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for his bravery and valor in combat.

Madison is a Military Family and Community Covenant city. The Covenant is a public affirmation and pledge to support military personnel, military families, and veterans.
