The Ozark City Hall and Public Works Field Office lobbies will be closed to the public beginning March 23 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The City is encouraging residents to stay home as much as possible over the coming days and weeks and abide by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations. Closing our lobby was not an easy decision, but it was a necessary step to help protect our customers and employees. For more information on how to pay your utility bill or reach city staff scroll to City Hall/Administration tab below.
We offer several options for customers needing to pay a utility bill currently. Customers can:
• Pay online by visiting www.ozarkmissouri.com and clicking "Water/Sewer Bill Pay."
• Pay 24/7 via our automated hotline, 417-581-2744 (you will need your account number and invoiced amount amount.)
• Pay by regular mail by sending in payment along with the statement you receive in the mail. Or use the night drop box located at City Hall
• For now the drive-thru window will remain open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday for your convenience but making an online or phone payment is currently the safest option.
While the lobby is closed, customers who need to connect or disconnect a utility service are asked to call 417-581-2744 for information.
Call departments in advance to discuss issues you may have and determine if an in-person meeting is needed. City departments will work to schedule virtual meetings and conference calls to continue as much business as possible.
