You may also drop off your payment at a conveniently located Pay Station.
Updates to Your Records:
You agree to promptly update your electronic mail address and other contact information if a change occurs.
If e-mails advising you of the availability of statements are returned to us, we may cancel your enrollment and resume sending you paper statements in the mail. If this happens, you will need to re-enroll to receive electronic communications with updated information.
We will make every effort to ensure our e-mail notifications are properly listed with all SPAM filter agencies. However, you are responsible for ensuring that any SPAM filters recognize e-mail originating from us. If you fail to receive e-mail notifications and/or electronic billing statements from us after enrolling for electronic communications, please check with the provider of your e-mail account and/or the SPAM filter associated with your e-mail account.
We reserve the right, at any time and without notice, to stop providing you with electronic billing statements and provide you paper statements, if your account is not maintained in good standing.
