Drop boxes added for city utility bills
DOWNTOWN – The city has added two new utility bill drop boxes: an envelope slot next to the Post Street doors to City Hall and a new drive-up drop box on Lincoln Street adjacent to the Downtown Library. The latter can be accessed by drivers without leaving their cars.
The former drop box on Post Street was removed in advance of construction that will turn Post Street into a one-way northbound street.
Post Street is expected to be closed until the end of October to complete this project and other construction in the area.
