Fire Hydrant Maintenance starting October 5, 2020

On October 5, 2020 the City of Louisville Fire Department will begin its annual fire hydrant maintenance. Hydrant maintenance will be for the most part conducted between the hours of 7:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Saturday although there may be some occasions where personnel will be required to work later in the evening. Please be mindful of our personnel when approaching the fire department vehicles on the side of the road. Residents may notice some temporary discoloration in the water. The discoloration of water is not harmful, and is the result of sediment that is always present in waterlines being “stirred up” during hydrant testing. As part of testing procedures, the Fire Department will flow each hydrant until the water is clear, however smaller water lines that lead to each house or business may still have cloudy water. If you notice discolored water it may be remedied by flowing water from your faucets, and a cycle through your washing machine until it is clear. Fire hydrant maintenance is important in order to ensure the City has properly working fire hydrants. The hydrants are inspected, flowed to check for adequate water flow, and cleaned around to ensure there is enough clearance for operation of the hydrant. A quality fire hydrant maintenance and inspections program is just one of the many components that the Mississippi State Rating Bureau evaluates when an audit of the city’s fire protection is completed. The City of Louisville currently has a fire rating of 6 with 1 being the highest, or best, and 10 being the lowest, or least desirable. Simply stated conducting these hydrant inspections, and maintenance assists in keeping property insurance low. Also fire hydrant flushing helps to insure that your firefighters are knowledgeable about the general water volumes available for firefighting operations and whether there are any major flow changes since last year’s test. Hydrant maintenance is critical to fire suppression and the protection of life and property.
If you have any questions regarding hydrant maintenance, and inspections feel free to contact The City of Louisville Fire Department at 662-773-9402.

Issued on April 7th, 2020. These orders can be seen and downloaded on our homepage as well:

City Approves Curfew

In a regular board meeting tonight, City of Louisville officials passed a curfew ordinance to support and clarify the similar ordinance approved on Monday by the Winston County Supervisors. The County ordinance establishes a curfew between the hours of 9:00 pm and 6:00 am. The County order included the City of Louisville.

To clarify and to provide Louisville Police Department with full authority to enforce the curfew, the City passed their own curfew ordinance.  Curfew hours in the City and County remain from 9:00 pm to 6:00 am. The curfew will remain in effect as long as the Governor's "Shelter in Place" order (1466) is in place. Currently that order remains in effect till April 20th but is subject to extension.

Violators will be subject to a fine up to $300 and possible jail time.

The ordinance will be available on the City's website, either later tonight or tomorrow.

In other action, the City also passed a resolution providing clarification to local businesses as to status as an "essential" business and to limit the number of customers inside larger retailers. The resolution sets a limit less than or equal to 10% of the allowed occupancy of the store (not including store personnel). The Louisville Fire Department will be working with these businesses to establish and enforce these limits. This resolution will also remain in effect following the timeline of the Governor's order.

Businesses that consistently violate the terms of the resolution will be subject to fines. This resolution will also be on the City's website when available.

From Mayor Hill

Be advised the local governing authorities are communicating daily, the City of Louisville, Town of Noxapater, and Winston County residents need to be re-assured the essential services you expect from your local government from first response in public safety, solid waste or trash collection, and the landfill continue to operate. Modifications may be made to business operations at each location but do know everyone is working in a responsible manner. 

 All local governing authorities strongly encourage everyone adhere to the advice of excellent hygiene, routine hand-washing, social distancing, not gathering in groups of more than 10, and do not get out unless it is absolutely necessary. 

We are all in this together and there are presently NO local mandates on businesses as so much of what is open are essential services or a lifeline for someone. Thank you for doing your part and please pay attention to recommendations of authorities and not succumb to rumors. We have a very solid method of communication in Winston County between healthcare, public safety officials, local governments as we navigate these times.

Feel free to use this time if you are able and take advantage of the beautiful days to clean up your piece of the world and the City will continue leaf collection through mid April.

Information From MEMA - 3/24/2020

As with any similar situation, there is a great deal of inaccurate information and rumors that surface. Please be careful as to your source. If you have questions, go to a legitimate provider of information. Locally these include:

Also follow WLSM for current info as well.
MEMA released the following information to clarify the current situation:

  • Currently there is not mandatory stay-home order. We ask folks to avoid crowds and frequently wash their hand.
  • Healthcare workers will be our top priority when receiving supplies along with first responders.
  • If you see the National Guard, they are assisting with delivering supplies, doing humanitarian service to help MSDH and MEMA

  • MEMA and MSDH are working to send out more supplies this week. County EMA will receive a shipment to disperse to first responders, hospitals will receive a shipment and long-term care facilities will receive a shipment.

  • We ask people not to hoard food. This is to ensure everyone has access to the supplies they need. There is not a food shortage. The overwhelming demand has slowed the process of getting food back on the shelves.

  • Daycares and businesses can choose to close on their own, at this time there is no mandatory order to do so.

  • There is a list of testing sites available at and msdh’s website
  • Please call the COVID-19 Hotline for your questions: 877-978-6453
