Bennett Residents, due to the recent outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Town of Bennett Town Hall will be CLOSED to the public until further notice.
As of Wednesday, March 18, and until further notice, the Town of Bennett has suspended disconnections of water service as customers cope with the spread of COVID-19/Coronavirus. We recognize the importance of water and want our customers to focus on their health and safety, rather than an interruption of service.
Payments can still be made online, or dropped in our drive thru box in the Town Hall parking lot. Permits are available online and inspections will still be conducted to unoccupied homes.
If you do not have internet access, you can still call us at (303) 644 3249.
