Utility Billing

BASIC INFORMATION:

Office Hours

Our office hours are Monday-Friday 8am-4:30pm. If you have a problem with your water service after 4:30pm, please call Public Works at 337-239-2995 for assistance.

Water/Sewer Rates

Current rates are based on the United State Consumer Price Index (CPI.) Every year water rates are adjusted based on the CPI. The new rates must then be approved by the City Council.

In 2022, the Council elected to continue with the 2021 rates, rather than applying the recommended increase. Current Water and Sewer Rates

In addition to the basic usage rates, there is an additional charge of $12.00 per year for Safe Drinking Water. This is added to your bill at a rate of $1.00 per month.

  • A 10% penalty is added on the 16th of every month if the bill has not been paid.
