• Silver Spur Resorts' 2nd Annual First Responders Day has been rescheduled from this Saturday, May 11, 2019 to August 10, 2019 from 10-2pm. Posted 5/9/2019



  • City offices will be CLOSED Monday, May 27 in observance of Memorial Day.  If you have a utility emergency, please contact the Canton PD at 903-567-4991.  Also, trash service will run as usual.
  • ATTN: UTILITY BILLING CUSTOMERS- Canton utility customers will notice an increased emphasis on collecting utility bills prior to termination of services.  The City's policy is to mail bills out on the last day of the month, and bills are due by the tenth (10th) day and late fees are assessed on the eleventh (11th) day of the month.  Termination notices are mailed out on the eleventh (11th) day.  State law requires all customers to receive a ten (10) day notice prior to termination, therefore termination will be effective on the twenty first (21st) day of the month.  We appreciate your understanding and cooperation, as we work hard to do a better job for you than we did the day before.

  • Van Zandt County is developing a multi-jurisdiction Hazard Mitigation Action Plan that will address natural hazards that affect all of Van Zandt County. 

A FEMA-approved hazard mitigation plan is required for eligibility for grant funds through FEMA’s HMA programs.  Funds from these federal grant programs may be awarded directly to the County and planning participants to implement mitigation projects identified in the Plan.  (Translation—if there is a major hazard problem, there may be grant money to help minimize or fix it.  This could include weak dams, flooding, etc.

Public participation is integral to this planning.  If you live in Van Zandt County, please participate by providing feedback by completing a short public survey that is available online.  Go to  

Thank you

Lou Ann Everett, Mayor
