CLEANIEST CITY


The City of Winnfield is proud to say that for the last four years we have been named the "Cleanest City" by the Louisiana Garden Club Federation Clean City Contest. On Monday April 30, 2018 Four representatives from the state were escorted by the City Beautification representative Katina Smith to tour the area. The City had to go through an evaluation process where by it was evaluated based on the cleanliness level of the city. Winnfield won the cleanest cit in District VIII and category F, competing against cities like Rayne, Tallulah, and Youngville. The primary goal of the LGCF Cleanest City Contest is to become a litter free Louisiana. 
This contest started in 1958 and is 60 years old. Cities are divided into 10 population categories in 8 districts. This insures a town of 300 is not judged with a city of 10,000. This begins on the district level and the winners of the district contest scoring 90% or above then compete on the State level. Mayor Kiah Beville is extremely proud of this recognition. Moreover, this award recognizes the efforts taken by our community. On March 17, 2018 many of our school and church groups along with city workers and Mayor Kiah Beville came together to improve the appearance of our city and we appreciate all that take pride in our city. 
Winnfield will advance to state judging.

Image result for clip art emergency numbers
 If you have an after hours electric, or sewer emergency, please call 1-866-448-6497. 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. 
 

 
 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.

FYI:
 
 
 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.



 Recently the Winnfield Fire Department was able to obtain a vehicle from the Federal Government Surplus in Baton Rouge. Through the efforts of both paid and volunteer firemen, fundraisers and donations generated a great portion of the funds needed to purchase this vehicle at the surplus cost of ten thousand dollars.

In light of recent flooding and natural disasters, this unit will be useful in not only flooding situations, but also other natural disaster for the citizens of Winnfield and Winn Parish.
