If you normally pay your utility bill at the drive-up dropbox off Colorado Avenue downtown, you can't do that for the next six weeks.
The parking lot is getting a face-lift, blocking access. Here's the press release with some other options for paying your bill:
Beginning Monday May 14, the Colorado Springs Utilities Customer Service Center (UCSC) east parking lot will be resurfaced, reducing the available parking space at this facility.
During this project, access from Colorado Avenue is restricted and the drive-up payment drop box will not be accessible. The project will last about six weeks, with a tentative end date of June 30.
The UCSC lobby, located at 111 S. Cascade Avenue (Cascade Avenue and Colorado Avenue) will still be open during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Customers will be able to access the UCSC facility from Cascade Avenue, with available parking in the south parking lot.
We apologize for the inconvenience and ask that customers consider using one of our other utility bill payment options.
Make a payment at a payment kiosk located at 7-Eleven® stores throughout Colorado Springs. Cash and debit card payments are free until June 30, 2012.
Use our free Autopay program to have payments automatically deducted from your bank account. You can sign up with our online registration form at csu.org
Pay by credit card, debit card or electronic checks online or by phone through Western Union Speed Pay®.
Pay your bill by cash, check or money order at more than 30 local retailers - including Safeway, Albertsons, King Soopers and Ace Cash Express - through Western Union Convenience Pay.
Use a payment dropbox. There are several locations throughout the city, including Wal-Mart, Safeway, Albertsons and King Soopers.
