Mayor's Office

Mayor Nic Hunter
It is a pleasure, as Mayor of the City of Lake Charles, to welcome you to our website. As you browse the site, you will find information regarding the history of our city, community events, online water bill payment, emergency information, city news and numerous local governmental topics.


The City of Lake Charles is actively involved with major downtown and lakefront development projects, as well as citywide infrastructure improvements that will bring new life and energy into an area of historic, cultural and economic significance.

With beautiful natural habitat areas, fresh water marshes, scenic rivers, beautiful sunsets on the lakefront, warm sandy beaches, coupled with smiling faces and warm hearts, Lake Charles is an inviting place to call home. There are a variety of dining, shopping, and entertainment experiences awaiting your enjoyment. Attractions of interest include the Charpentier Historical District, the Port of Lake Charles, Millennium and Adventure Cove Parks, 1911 Historic City Hall, and the Central School Arts and Humanities Center. Lake Charles possesses many of the appealing characteristics and qualities of a great urban center, yet maintains that "personable feel" of a smaller town.
We have designed this website for accessibility to city information and services. Whether you are a resident, business person, or visitor, we hope it provides a useful and comprehensive source of information. Check frequently for current Lake Charles news, as we will update this site daily and add more online features.
