Tampa residents can now pay utility bills on city app

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA, FL (WFLA) - For mobile savvy Tampa residents, the city is now offering utility bill pay on its mobile app.

Utility bill pay is the latest offering on the City of Tampa app. The app also offers residents the option to request city services - either ask a question or report a problem - browse events happening in Tampa, find jobs, and latest city news.

Residents with utility accounts with the city can view their account information online or may a payment.

To download the free app, citizens should look in the iTunes or Google Play stores under the name "City of Tampa."

"I want to make it as easy as possible for residents and those who use city services to stay connected with local government. This will give our utility customers an easier, more accessible way to pay each month," said Mayor Bob Buckhorn. “We are continuing to work to make City Hall more technology oriented and by extension, customer friendly.”

Developers are also working on integrating push notifications for utility customers to remind them when bills are due as well as for emergency alert notifications.

In addition to push notifications, the mobile app will soon incorporate a "find my park" tool to allow residents to search nearby parks and recreational facilities, as well as web tours of both the Tampa Riverwalk and local public art collection.
