Please know that the Village of Mechanicsburg is providing full services to the Village. We are working staggered shifts to ensure that our employees and their families remain safe.

The Village of Mechanicsburg is suspending disconnection of utility services, late fees and penalties for non-payment from March 23rd through April 25th. The temporary suspension should not be considered a reason to not pay your utility bill. Customers may use the night deposit box to pay utility bills. We have provided envelopes for your convenience. After April 25th, delinquent utility accounts will be reviewed and the need for service disconnections will be determined by the office on a case by case basis to ensure that delinquent balances do not become so excessive that they cannot be brought current within a reasonable time. To initiate new service, the application can be found on the website here. Please drop application off along with copy of your driver’s license, $100 deposit and all necessary signatures and we will schedule your water to be turned on.
Police, Fire and EMS services remain fully staffed at this time. Please call 911 for any emergency as usual. All other non-emergency calls may be made to (937) 834-3187 and appropriate extension.
