Update:The Leesville Water Department mailed out water bills on Friday, April 21, 2017. Please make note of the due date that appears on your bill. The meter readings reflect a two month reading and while the city is continuing to post payments, some bills may be higher or lower than normal. Moreover, any payments made between Feb. 28th and Mar. 2nd maybe incorrect. Please contact the water department to obtain the correct amount. For more information, please call the water department at 337-404-4098 or 404-4099. Online Bill Pay service is working; however due to prior complications, we encourage all customers to mail in, pay in person, or use the drop box to remit payments.
Customers wishing to pay their utility bill, transfer an account, or establish a new account can do so at the Utility Department. A normal utility bill will include water and sewer charges. Other services provided at this department are the payment of property taxes, permits, and occupational licenses.
Customers can pay using cash, check, money order, or a debit/credit card (American Express not accepted). A drop box is available after hours in front of the municipal complex. Please note that only checks or money orders are allowed to be placed in the drop box.
Customers can also pay utility bills online if they know their account and pin number. These items are printed on every monthly bill. Please note that the City does not accept E-Checks. If services have been disconnected, please call into office and speak to a cashier after payment is made to have services reestablished.
Please view our notice regarding the most updated water and sewer rates (PDF). Also there will be a $12.00 per year charge added to every water bill, $1.00 per month for safe drinking water.
Utility bills are due on the 15th of every month. A 10% penalty is added on the 16th of every month if the bill has not been paid. The City of Leesville no longer tags doors to alert customers who are in danger of services being cut off. Cutoffs are usually performed on the 20th of every month.
