  • How do I update or verify my paperless bill setting?

    When you enroll on our online bill presentment portal, you are automatically enrolled in paperless statements.  You will no longer receive paper bill in the mail, instead, you will receive a monthly notification when your bill is available to view.  You can update your paperless preferences in the online portal. 
  • I have enabled recurring payments in my online profile, what next?

    Automated or recurring payments are a great way to make sure that your utility bill gets paid on time.  Our 3rd party service provider, Kubra, will send you a notification to confirm the recurring payment.  You will also receive a notification before the payment is scheduled in case you want to modify it in anyway.  Each recurring payment will require your approval, which is as simple as clicking on a link when you receive the notification.
  • A payment I made outside of the online portal is not showing in the online portal, is it applied?

    Payments can be made in a variety of ways, the online portal only reflects payments made or scheduled within the portal.  Your utility bill will reflect any payments made regardless of method of payment. Each time your account bills, the online portal will reflect this balance.

  • I am not receiving text or SMS notifications.

    Please make sure you have not enabled the blacklisting of 5 digit numbers on your device.  In most cases you have to call your provider to verify that blacklisting is disabled.  In some cases you may have installed a blacklisting application on your smartphone or device, this application may need to be set to allow 5 digit numbers to SMS or text.

    Blacklisting is intended to hide messages from you that you're not interested in, for example spam messages, people who are harassing you that you want to ignore, etc

  • I am already setup for Direct Debit or an Automated Payment, do I need to set this up on my online portal?

    If you are an active Direct Debit customer, you do not need to re-enroll for Automatic Payment through KUBRA when you sign up for E-Bill. Your payments will continue to be deducted from your designated bank account 10 days after your bill generates.
