Say goodbye to credit card convenience fees

We have exciting news! Starting soon, we will no longer charge credit card and convenience fees. Not only will this save you money, but it will also create new, convenient ways to pay for your utility bill. These improvements to our account services are possible because we are partnering with a new payment processor.

Once the new payment processing system is fully implemented, there will no longer be a $2.25 convenience fee. You will need to enter card information in the MyHBPW portal the first time you use the new system. 

Customers who currently have automatic payments in place will receive written instructions about when and how to set up automatic payments.
