The City of Beaumont is still diligently working with our software vendor to get on a new platform for online water utility payments since the data breach on August 29.

Unfortunately, while working out what needs to be done to upgrade the system, Beaumont was hit by Hurricane Harvey and the subsequent flooding. Once we were back in the office and ready to work with the vendor again, they were hit with Hurricane Irma. They have yet to make it back into their offices, but anticipate that they will be able to make it back this week.
