TRAFFIC ALERT! If you're coming to pay your utility bill at the Utility Business Office on Ft. Totten Drive, please be aware the traffic pattern has changed. Out of precaution and to prevent the spread of illness, the Business Office is closed to walk-in traffic. Please enter the parking lot from Neuse Boulevard (near Family Dollar) and follow the traffic cones to the drive-thru. We've changed the traffic pattern to make it easier to get in and out quickly. Or, skip the lines and pay online, at Walmart, or after hours using our dropbox located in the rear of the building.  Need help or want to make a payment arrangement for your utility bill? Call us at (252)639-2750.
