SCHEDULED POWER OUTAGE SATURDAY, JULY 30th FROM 6:00 AM TO 9:00 AM: The changeover and tie in to the City of Winnfield's new electric substation will occur on Saturday, July 30th. Entergy and City of Winnfield electric crews will begin the process of energizing the new substation at 6:00 am. This will result in a complete loss of power for all City of Winnfield electric customers. Pending no complications, power is anticipated to be restored by 9:00 am the same day. Please make every effort to conserve water during the outage. We look forward to the reliability our new substation will provide, and apologize for any inconvenience.

UTILITY BILLS FOR JULY: Due to our recent software conversion, utility bills are running a little late this month. You should look for them to arrive in the mail starting this Friday. We will be extending the date to pay without late fee until the 20th of July. If you call the utility office at 628-4452 they can give you the amount due for your July bill. You are welcome to pay by mail or in person at any time. We apologize for any inconvenience.
 
 
 WATER DISCOLORATION: In addition to the water main break on Friday, our Ozone plant went down on Sunday. It has since been repaired and is functioning at full capacity at this time. Any discoloration should subside within 24 to 48 hours. If you are still experiencing discoloration after this time frame, please report the problem to City Hall at 318-628-3939.

BOIL WATER ADVISORY: The City of Winnfield has issued a Boil Water Advisory due to a water main break caused by construction crews at the O'Reilly Auto Parts site. The advisory is for parts of District 3 as highlighted on the map below. This advisory is in effect until further notice. It will run at a minimum through Wednesday so that water samples can be tested. We apologize for any inconvenience.

 WATER OUTAGE: A Main water line has been broken by crews building the new O'Reilly Auto Parts Store. City crews are on scene working to repair the break. A boil water advisory will be issued once line is repaired for those areas of the City that are without water. We will post more information on the boil water advisory shortly.
 

The utility office will be closed all day today complete our software conversion. We apologize for any inconvenience, but look forward to bringing you enhanced service with our new software application.

Stay tuned for information on online payments and account information, pay by phone options, and payments by credit and debit cards! These service will be rolled out later this month!

If you have an after hours electric, or sewer emergency, please call 318-628-6832. This telephone number is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please be mindful that this number is for emergencies only. Non-emergencies can be reported to City Hall at 318-628-3939 during normal operating hours. 
 PLEASE VISIBLY DISPLAY YOUR 911 ADDRESS
When responding to emergencies, the City of Winnfield Police and Fire Departments sometimes have a hard time finding the right address. Every second counts during an emergency. Valuable time can be lost if your house number is not clearly posted where emergency responders can see it. Firefighters, EMS responders, and police officers cannot provide emergency services to you or your family if they cannot find your house. Having your address posted clearly and visibly allows them to find you much quicker.

Ask yourself these questions:

•Can your house be found easily by passing cars?
•Is your house number easily found from the street?
•Can it be found quickly in an emergency?
•Can it be found at night?
•Can it be found from a distance?
•Can it be found when seconds count?

If the answer is NO, please consider putting up a new address sign with your house number.

Here are some recommendations:

•Post your address clearly and prominently at the end of your driveway and on your home.
•Posting your 9-1-1 address at the driveway entrance and on your home will alleviate any confusion as to whether emergency responders have the correct location.
•Try using something reflective or illuminated so that it can be seen in the evening as well as during the day.
•Use large numbers and make sure it can be seen from all directions.
•Do not assume since your mailbox is marked, you have posted your address – mailboxes are not always at the entrance of a driveway.

Should you have questions concerning the display of your 911 Address, please contact City Hall at 318-628-3939.

 

 

Ask yourself these questions:

The City of Winnfield is warning its business and residential customers to be aware that fraudulent callers are contacting utility customers and demanding that a bill payment be made immediately or they will face utility disconnection.

The City of Winnfield WILL NOT call and demand payment from customers. Please hang up if you receive this type of call, and do not fall victim to this scam. While these fraudulent calls sound very realistic, they are actually an attempt to gain access to your financial information. Customers can contact the utility office at 628-4452 should they have any questions regarding their utility account. Please remember that the City of Winnfield WILL NOT call and demand payment from customers.
