The city of Alexandria may add an online payment method for utility bills, as well as credit card and debit card payments at the city's downtown Customer Service Center.
The idea was discussed with city council members after concerns regarding utility bill payments being sent to New Orleans for processing.
Councilman Ed Larvadain III said he has gotten a number of calls from constituents saying they
have received late notification because of the process.
The utility bills are calculated in Alexandria, printed in Monroe and mailed from Monroe, and then processed in New Orleans.
