Tips For Arranging Utility Connections in Tuscaloosa

 

Utilities in Tuscaloosa provide easy accessibility to their services, offering numerous walk-up payment sites, on-line options, payments made by phone and mail, and auto-pay options, all with convenient payment methods.  Initial account setups require a non-refundable fee, a relatively large deposit and credit clearance. If your utilities have been disconnected because of non-payment or a past due bill, the balance must be cleared up prior to established new service.  After it is established, your account can be easily accessed on-line for paying your bill, checking your consumption and other information.

Tuscaloosa’s Utility's bank draft program offers two convenient options:  automatic monthly or web/phone draft.

There are also several options for paying your bills in person. There are several payment agents including local grocery stores, convenience stores, drugstores and other businesses. Payment agents are not able to place orders, however. When paying with an authorized payment agent a bill stub is required to make a payment, and a convenience fee for each payment transaction may be charged.
