City of Austin walk-in utility customer service centers temporarily reclosing

January 6, 2022

As part of the City of Austin’s continued commitment to the health and safety of our community and employees, walk-in utility customer service centers will temporarily close to the public, effective Friday, Jan. 7. The closure is in response to rising COVID-19 cases in Austin and the quickly spreading omicron variant after Austin Public Health officially increased the COVID-19 community risk level to Stage 5, the highest level, on Jan. 6.

The closure impacts the North Utility Customer Service Center at 8716 Research Blvd, Suite 115 and the South Utility Customer Service Center at 1901 W. William Cannon Dr. The Rosewood Zaragosa Utility Customer Service Center at 2800 Webberville Road, Suite 110, which has been closed since March 2020, will remain closed.

Customers are encouraged to make City of Austin utility payments at or to call Customer Care at 512-494-9400 for service needs.

Additional options for customers needing to make payments while our payment centers are closed include:
