CLEARWATER – The city of Clearwater warns residents of unauthorized pay stations regarding utility bills.
Customers of the city of Clearwater Utilities have encountered problems with their utility payments, including delayed or nonreceipt of payments, when customers have made utility payments at check cashing stores, convenience stores and other similar establishments, according to a city press release.
The city of Clearwater does not have any authorized pay stations, nor does it have third parties that are authorized to process payment of city utility bills. Customers who pay their bills at such pay stations or use third parties do so at their own risk, the city said.
Bills may be paid directly at the Municipal Services Building, 100 S. Myrtle Ave. or by mail using the envelope provided with the utility bills.
Payment also may be made via credit card or electronic check through the city’s authorized electronic payment processor, Western Union SpeedPay.
