Earlier this year, the U.S. Postal Service revised its service standards for first-class mail, resulting in a delivery window of up to five days for certain items.
The change may affect the flow of mail to and from Starkville Utilities, potentially resulting in delayed bills and payments—a concern that customers can avoid by switching to one of Starkville Utilities’ reliable and convenient electronic options.
“We want customers to be aware of postal service changes that may affect their mailed bills and payments,” said Terry Kemp, general manager of Starkville Utilities. “This is a great time to consider our many payment options that are not only free, secure and convenient but also provide peace of mind that accounts are in good standing.”
Customers also can pay bills in person using the drive-through window or kiosk and drop box located at 200 N. Lafayette Street. Lobby hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and drive-through hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“An important part of our Renew Principle commitment is making it as easy and convenient as possible to do business with Starkville Utilities,” Kemp said. “By offering a variety of billing and payment options, we’re giving customers more control over how they manage their accounts and providing options that match their banking preferences.”
