Outgoing Mail Difficulties

In recent weeks, the MUD 71 Board has received reports that the U.S. Postal Service may no longer be picking up outgoing mail from individual resident mailboxes, even if the flag is properly displayed.

If you normally pay your utility by mail and place the envelope in your mailbox, please be aware that this could result in delayed receipt of utility bill payments.

MUD 71 has partnered with First Billing Services to offer a variety of telephone and electronic payment options to help make paying your bill quicker and easier.  For more information, please visit: https://hcmud71.com/electronic-payment-options.

Emergency Preparedness Planning

Are You Prepared?
