FYI:
Fellow Citizens: 
 As your Mayor, I want to alert you that your March electricity bills may be extremely high as a result of the January freeze.

The City of Winnfield purchases electricity on behalf of our citizens and businesses from Louisiana Energy and Power Authority(LEPA); We pay for the electric service with the money citizens and businesses pay to the City for using the electricity. LEPA notified us on Friday that the record-breaking cold weather in January will result in extremely high March utility bills- the bills on which January usage will be included. 

We wanted to inform you as quickly as possible so that you can further plan for the higher bills.

While we all expect to pay more when we use more energy, the freezing temperatures throughout the country caused double trouble. In addition to a doubling of energy consumed during the freeze, the nationwide demand resulted in an almost doubling of the price paid for energy. The higher bills occuring not only in Winnfield, but across the state and the nation. This is an unfortunate situation for everyone who uses electricity but is something over which the City of Winnfield has no control.

We would hope not but do expect that even given their best efforts, some citizens will not be able to immediately pay these bills. Some possible options are available to customers to help them pay their March electricity bills.

    1. Any customer may apply for budget billing which can level out the highs and lows of their monthly bills for the calendar year. There are certain restrictions with this program. Contact the City of Winnfield Utility Department at 628-4452 if you are interested in applying for budget billing.
   2. Customers can contact the Pine Belt Multi-Purpose Agency regarding utility assistance. We will be in contact with that agency this week to make them aware if the urgency of the need.
   3. Customers can make arrangements with the Utility Department to make partial payments toward your bill during the month, which may be helpful to those citizens who are paid weekly or bi-weekly. However, bills must be paid in full by the cut-off date. 

We cannot guarantee that any assistance will be available from these sources or, if available, if any assistance will be available to you. All customers remain responsible for paying their entire bill.

The bills covering the January freeze will be sent out as soon as possible in March, with normal payment die on March 12 and cut-off date of March 25.

Without any more extreme weather, electricity bills should return to normal levels for the April billing period, Please contact me at City Hall at 318-628-3939  if you have any questions.

Sincerely,
Mayor Kiah Beville



FYI:

 DUE TO EXTREME WINTER WEATHER CONDITIONS LEPA HAVE HAD SUCH A DEMAND ON POWER THAT THERE MAY BE A CHANCE OF SOME AREAS (STATE WIDE) EXPERIENCING SOME ROLLING POWER BLACK OUTS. PLEASE CONSERVE POWER WHERE YOU CAN....THIS COULD AFFECT ALL ELECTRICAL CUSTOMERS IN THE STATE. THIS IS ONLY A POSSIBILITY.

THIS IS FOR INFORMATION ONLY.

 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.
