At Monday’s meeting of Wadley Town Council, Mayor Donna McKay explained to the council and residents about a problem with the delivery of utility bills for this month.
“The bills were mailed out on Monday, October 2. They have all been lost in the mail in Birmingham,” McKay said. “The Town of Wadley has been in regular contact with the Post Office officials to determine what happened and what steps we should take in order for the customers to get their bills.”
She went on to say how customers can get their bill amount and make payment.
“Call the Town Hall at 256-395-2261 to find out what you owe or come by Town Hall to pay directly. There will not be a late fee this month. All customers must pay by the 25th of the month in order to keep their service connected. Please remember that we have a drop box located outside the front door of Town Hall, so you may deposit your payment there if you wish. If you would like a reprint of your bill, we are able to do that–just come to the Town Hall to pick it up, send your email and we will scan it and send it that way, or we can text it to you if we have your cell number.”
“We apologize for this inconvenience; this was something completely out of our control,” she added.
She wants all residents to share this information.
“Thank you all so very much for your support and understanding. We have the best citizens.”
Mayor McKay’s Office Hours are 7:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
