The meters are read between the 8th and the 10th of each month. Bills are mailed by the last working day of the month.  If you have not received your bill, please contact the City of Scott (337.233.1130) as soon as possible. The customer is responsible for payment of the bill by the 10th of the month. After the 20th, a penalty of $5.00 will be assessed.

After the 26th or the last Tuesday at the discretion of the Utility Clerk, SERVICES WILL BE DISCONNECTED FOR NON-PAYMENT 

To have services reconnected, customers must pay the AFTER 20th AMOUNT IN FULL (including penalty) plus an ADDITIONAL ADMINISTRATION FEE of $75.00.

We DO NOT accept credit and debit cards for re-connections.

THIS ADMINISTRATION FEE IS NONREFUNDABLE!

Cut-Offs: (people moving out of town)
Due to our computer program, your meter deposit will be applied toward your final bill. Cut-Offs will be made during the normal billing cycle. If you have a balance due, you will be sent a final bill for what is owed, less the amount of the deposit.
