Welcome to Leonard!
News and Announcements
Dear City of Leonard Water Customers,
On this month’s water bills, you will notice the City has issued a 10% credit to each water account per our previous notification. The discount is based on the full amount of your last bill which covered the time of freezing temperatures (bill date 3/8). We understand the inclement weather may have caused instances of service interruption, undue consumption, or other hardship beyond your control affecting your February water bill. It is our hope this credit helps to alleviate any resulting effects of the weather during the last billing period.
We apologize for any confusion this may cause and appreciate your patience while we return to our regular billing cycle.
Please contact City Hall if you have any questions.

To help fund some of the infrastructure projects in the city, the City of Leonard is applying for grant funds from the Texas Community Development Block Grant, and they require a response from every home in town regarding family income. If you have not already done so, please take a few moments to answer the community survey. Thank you for your participation in helping further the city's repairs and enhancements.
City of Leonard Water Customers,
The February bill is ready and should be received by eBill and in the mail this week. Since this bill was sent out later than usual the due date has been extended to March 23rd. Payments that are set up to be drafted will all be done on the 15th.
If you have experienced a Loss of Water to due a leak, or other water loss, the Loss of Water Policy and Form can be found at www.cityofleonard.net on the “Customer Service/Utility Billing” page under the “City Services”. Full details are on the policy and completed forms can be turned in to City Hall or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
As a courtesy, automatic ACH drafts have been temporarily disabled for customers with excessive usage for this billing period. Please make alternate payment arrangements by the due date and contact City Hall if you need to file a water loss claim. ACH will resume as usual in April.
Attn: City of Leonard Water Customers
At this current time, the City wants you to be aware of a few things regarding Utility Billing.
We apologize for any inconvenience and confusion, and we thank you for your patience and cooperation as we recover from this extreme weather event.
For the purposes of tracking and reporting damages to Fannin County Emergency Management, we are asking residents to notify City Hall of any damages incurred at their home, business, or property during the winter storm. You can send the property address and a brief description to email@example.com. (for example, loss of livestock, property damage, leak damage, etc.)
Thank you for your assistance.
Due to the freezing temperatures, and possible freeze breaks in plumbing lines, the City is urging all of our residents to check your meters, please. If the meter is spinning while the appliances are off inside the home or business, you could possibly have a water leak. If you have a leak, you’ll want to attend to it as quickly as possible to keep your bill down and conserve the city resources. We have heard of several such situations already, and are requesting the participation of residents, landlords, business owners, and property owners at this time.
If you notice a water leak:
Report the leak by calling 903-587-3334
Email to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you experienced a leak during the freeze:
The City is relaxing our water loss policy to allow our water customers the ability to submit a water loss claim, even if you had an adjustment in the previous 12-months. Proof of repair will be required at the time you file your water loss claim, and adjustments will be processed within ten (10) business days. Please refer to the City’s water loss policy and claim form.
If you need to make plumbing repairs, or have made plumbing repairs:
A building permit is required to perform plumbing work in the city. Due to the extenuating circumstances, the city is waiving permit fees at this time for plumbing repairs due to the freeze. We are NOT currently waiving the requirement for building permits or the requirement for plumbing work to be completed by an authorized person, or for a contractor registered with the city. Contractors must be licensed and registered.
Per City Ordinance:
No person shall engage in work or the conduct of the business of plumbing within the municipality, except as herein specifically exempted, unless such person is the holder of a valid license as issued by the state board of plumbing examiners. Nothing contained herein shall prohibit the employment of a journeyman plumber or apprentice to engage in plumbing work under the general supervision of a master plumber nor plumbing work done by a property owner in a building or on premises owned or occupied by him or her as his or her home. (2002 Code, sec. 150.041)
Thank you for your patience and cooperation while we get the City back up and running to better serve you.
Effective immediately, the City of Leonard will no longer be issuing burn permits. Residents are required to follow TCEQ Outdoor Burn Rules RG-049.
The City of Leonard strives to provide transparency to its citizens.
