To schedule an appointment, visit TestIowa.com and complete an assessment. After the assessment, it will determine if you need to be tested and ask what site you choose.

Currently, CRHC's site will be open today from 3-5 p.m., Thursday from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m.-11 a.m. with more dates and times possible based on demand.

Beware of Utility Scams

Consumer Beware: electrical providers are reporting the following scams being targeted at their customers on a statewide basis in Iowa.
• Scam caller advising customer that if they are experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19, they are eligible to pay a portion of their past due balance upfront and defer the balance for up to 3 months. Customer provides payment over the phone to scammer.
• Scammer advises payment arrangements are being cancelled or revised to assist with COVID-19 and that by providing them with account information, they can take care of outstanding payments by phone.
• When asked why the caller ID shows up as "Unavailable" or "No Caller ID" the scammer says they are working from home and the caller ID phone number will not appear as the utility company phone number. Seemingly reasonable response, caller provides payment information or account information by phone.

Lenox Municipal Utilities (LMU) will NOT contact you by phone for credit card information or account information! LMU will contact you by mail and by a door posting. Please be very cautious on who you give sensitive information to.

Our pool normally opens on Memorial Weekend, but that will not happen this year. We still do not have a date on when we will open the pool. The Governor made a proclamation today that states swimming pools may open for lap swimming and to conduct swimming lessons. The City of Lenox Park Board will meet to make a recommendation to the City Council on how to proceed. Once this is decided, we will be sure to let all of you know. Thank you for your patience and we are still hopeful that we will open our pool at some point this summer.
Here is from the Governor's Proclamation:
C. Swimming pools: A swimming pool, as defined in Iowa Code § 135I.1 may reopen for the limited purpose of lap swimming and conducting swimming lessons, but only to the extent that the establishment operating the pool takes reasonable measures under the circumstances of each establishment to ensure social distancing of employees and patrons, increased hygiene practices, and other public health measures to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 consistent with Guidance issued by the Iowa Department of Public Health. Except for these limited purposes, all swimming pools and spas, wading pools, water slides, wave pools, spray pads, and bath houses, as defined in Iowa Code § 135I.1, shall continue to be closed.

Now that it is FINALLY mowing season, we want to remind everyone of a couple of rules.
The allowable maximum height of grass shall be 8 inches in residential, business and industrial zoned areas. It is the responsibility of the property owner to ensure their property is maintained properly. If the owner does not, the city will send a notice giving you 48 hours to cut the grass or the city will perform the work and assess the fees to the property owners. There is a $100 surcharge and then $100/hour for the city to perform the work.
Also, DO NOT blow your grass clippings into the street. This can/will result in a fine. The placement of grass clippings on roadways is not only a safety hazard, especially for those on motorcycles and bicycles but it is also an unwanted problem in storm water management.
Thank you for your cooperation! Happy mowing season!

Lenox Utilities understands this is a hard time for all of our customers and there are still so many questions regarding the current COVID-19 pandemic. With that being said, we want to encourage on-time payments; however, LMU is waiving all late fees and suspending non-pay disconnection procedures for your electric/water and communication services until May 1, 2020.
After May 1st, normal bill collections will resume. We will work with our customers on bill payment agreements, if necessary. Please contact us for additional concerns or questions.
