City of Ville Platte code of ordinances. Click here to read the ordinances for your city.
Sight: Liquid pools, discolored or abnormally dry soil, continuous bubbling in wet or flooded areas, an oily sheen on water surfaces, and vaporous fogs or blowing dirt around a pipeline area can all be indicative of a pipeline leak. Dead or discolored plants in an otherwise healthy area of vegetation or frozen ground in warm weather are other possible signs.
Sound: Volume can range from a quiet hissing to a loud roar depending on the size of the leak.
Smell: An unusual smell, petroleum odor, a smell of rotten egg, or gaseous odor will sometimes accompany a pipeline leak. Natural gas is odorless and remains so during transit to the distribution facilities where odorants are added to the gas to impart a distinct odor.
Don't let this happen to you.
Please avoid the extra cost associated with your property being sold at tax sale. These costs are generated by laws that require the City to advertise delinquent taxes in the official journal (The Ville Platte Gazette) and produce additional notices by certified mail, etc. Once your property is sold at tax sale, the City will be required to collect expenses, including very high interest rates to be paid to the individual or entity who purchased your property at tax sale, from you, before your property can be put back in your name. In some cases these costs can be many multiples of the original tax bill.
