City Hall Closing to Public

November 10th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

With a strong resurgence of COVID-19 cases in Allegany County, Cumberland City Hall will be closing to the general public beginning Thursday, November 12, 2020, in an effort to keep our citizens safer through minimal personal contact. Much like the closure that took place in March, operations within City Hall may be modified, but will be staffed sufficiently to support the needs of the City of Cumberland. Any business or transaction that requires a visit to City Hall must be conducted by appointment only, and the appropriate individual or department should be contacted by phone or email in advance to arrange a mutually agreeable time. The City of Cumberland encourages the utilization of online payment methods for utility bills and any other financial obligations, such as parking violations, citations, real property tax, personal property tax and corporate tax. Visit for more details and instructions to pay online.
Payments may also be made in the following ways:
 Mailed to 57 N. Liberty Street, Cumberland, MD 21502
 Paid by phone (credit card payment) by calling 301-759-6409
 Placed in the drop box outside City Hall, 1st floor
 Drive-by drop box at Chamber of Commerce Bell Tower in City Hall plaza
 At select First United Bank locations: 115 Harrison St. or White Oaks
Shopping Center (1501 E. Oldtown Road) – Cash payments for water/sewer only
Persons needing to conduct business in-person regarding permits, rental licensing and
code issues should contact the Community Development Department in advance to
schedule an appointment at 301-722-2000, Extension 5600.
Any other in-person appointment requests or questions regarding the closure of City
Hall should be directed to 301-722-2000.
