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.

 

  1. Water bills for the February-March billing period have been mailed, and should be delivered this week. 
  2. E-bills were uploaded yesterday afternoon for accounts enrolled in electronic billing through the E-Commerce website.
  3. ACH drafts typically drawn on the 1st of the month are being drafted on or around the 7th.
  4. ACH drafts typically drawn on the 15th of the month are being drafted on or around the 15th.
  5. Due dates have been extended to 4/20 for this bill only.
  6. Late fees will apply to payments received after 4/20.
  7. If you do not receive your bill, please contact City Hall and we will be happy to get you a copy. 

 

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.

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 utilitybilling@cityofleonard.net

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.

Thank you,

The City of Leonard

Attn: City of Leonard Water Customers

At this current time, the City wants you to be aware of a few things regarding Utility Billing.

  • Due to the inclement weather interrupting billing operations, the utility bills for the January-February period will be delayed this month.  Bills are normally mailed the last week of the month and are due by the 15th of the following month.  We are estimating that you will receive your bill approximately one week later than usual.
  • There will be added considerations for the utility bills including service dates January 15 through February’s bill date.  We understand several weather-related situations may be impacting your bill this month and the City will do its best to accommodate those situations. 
  • Due to the above, the late date (in March) will also be extended.  Please stay tuned for more specific dates and details as we work through the aftermath this situation.
  • The utility bills for the billing period of December 15 through January 15, which were due February 15th, are still due and payable, and are subject to regular fees and penalties (although delayed). 

We apologize for any inconvenience and confusion, and we thank you for your patience and cooperation as we recover from this extreme weather event.

Thanks,

The City of Leonard

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 utilitybilling@cityofleonard.net. (for example, loss of livestock, property damage, leak damage, etc.) 

Thank you for your assistance.

Dear Residents,

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 utilitybilling@cityofleonard.net

 

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.
