“For security reasons, we normally do not offer payments over the phone to our customers,” says Harker. “But in these trying times, we felt it was necessary to relax this policy and make it easier for customers to pay their water bill or their court and traffic fines. Customer safety is our number one priority right now, and creating this new option for payment is not only more convenient but also keeps our employees safe.”

Although paying by phone is now available, the City prefers that customers pay their water bills online.

“Give us a call, and we will work with you,” says Harker. “We don’t want any of our citizens to have to make hard choices. We are all in this together. That is why we want people to call us and make arrangements one-on-one. Any way that we can help our residents get through this difficult time is what we are here to do.”
