City of Zachary Utility Service Announcement

Posted by zachary on March 16, 2020

The City Council has determined that the global outbreak of COVID-19 together with the economic hardships that may result will cause a temporary increase in the number of delinquent utility accounts.  As a result, an Emergency Ordinance was passed today at a Special Zachary Council Meeting allowing the city to temporary waive disconnection of utility services during the next (60) days. 

The City of Zachary WILL waive the requirement of the collection of late fees and reconnection fees for utilities services provided upon proof by the account holder that the property upon which services were provided sustained the economic hardships suggested by the global outbreak of COVID-19. 

We encourage you to continue to pay your current City of Zachary water/gas bill, as each household will be responsible for the total amount owed after the 60-day period is scheduled to expire on May 15th, 2020.  As with our payment policy currently in place, there will be no payment plan initiated for utility bills during this emergency provision.
