How much is my bill?Senatobia2023-06-16T14:48:23-05:00
Call 662-562-5251 or come by the Utility Billing Office. We have a one page form to complete. If you come to the office, bring a voided check from the account you wish to draft so we can get the proper bank routing and account numbers.
Do you have an equal payment plan?Senatobia2023-06-16T15:05:54-05:00
Late notices are mailed around the 15th of each month (depending on holidays and weekends). A cut-off date is shown on this notice. Your account must be paid in full by 5:00 PM the day before cut-off in order to avoid a $ 50.00 delinquent fee (this includes online payments, night depository payments and walk-in payments). If your account is still delinquent at 8:00 AM on the day of cut-off, a $ 50.00 delinquent fee will be added to the account even if City Personnel has not disconnected your service, yet. In order to reconnect, you must pay your account in full plus pay the $ 50.00 delinquent fee. Your service will be reconnected during normal working hours, which maybe the next business day after your payment is made. Your actual reconnection time will be determined by the workload of our reconnect crew.
Can I make partial payments on my account?Senatobia2023-06-16T15:07:26-05:00
Yes, the City will grant an extension of payment for an outstanding regular monthly utility bill for any customer. Subject to the following:
Two (2) extensions of payment may be granted each calendar year.
The extension period is from the “cut-off” date until 2:00PM on the last business day of the month. If payment is not received in full by 2:00 PM on the last business day of the month, utilities will be disconnected.
Extensions will not be granted the day of cut-off.
Do you transfer deposits?Senatobia2023-06-16T15:07:54-05:00
We currently do not issue burn permits. You do need to call and let the fire department know if you are planning on burning. The burning consists of leaves, sticks, and some wood products (we recommend keeping fires 50 ft away from any structures). Sometimes burn bans are issued throughout the state curing extremely dry periods, which will prohibit any outside burning.
What do I do if I smell gas?Senatobia2023-06-16T15:11:09-05:00
For any gas smells, please leave the structure first, and then call 911 immediately from a neighbor’s house or from your cell phone. The fire department will respond along with the City of Senatobia utility employees. Please leave the house and do not re-enter until the gas smell has been cleared.
Do we have storm sirens?Senatobia2023-06-16T15:11:27-05:00
When the City of Senatobia is notified by the National Weather Service of a possible tornado in the area, we will activate the three storm sirens within the city. Storm sirens are tested weekly at Noon on Saturdays, weather permitting.
What else can I do in the event of bad weather?Senatobia2023-06-16T15:11:42-05:00
We recommend that every family and business purchase a weather alert radio and tune it to receive the National Weather Service warnings for this area. If you need assistance properly tuning the radio, please contact Chief Gary Copeland at Fire Station #1.
What do I do if I need a fire report?Senatobia2023-06-16T15:11:56-05:00
You may come by station #1 and fill out an application. The members vote all volunteers into the department. We have a committee that will come to speak to you and your family and will recommend you for a vote. If you would like to apply for a full-time fireman’s position (paid city employee), pick up an employment application at City Hall or Station #1.
Will you inspect my home or business?Senatobia2023-06-16T15:12:38-05:00
Yes, provided you have been charged with a traffic violation other than a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) or DUID (Driving Under the Influence of Drugs). We now accept payment online, but traffic ONLY at this link:
