  • BPU Suspends Disconnects as Communities Address Coronavirus

    The Kansas City Board of Public Utilities (BPU) will not disconnect utility service for non-payment as customers and communities are facing potential hardship from coronavirus. This temporary moratorium includes residential and business customers.

    Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommend limiting person-to-person contact amid coronavirus in our communities. BPU’s primary objective in this situation is to protect and keep customers and the community safe. As a result, we wanted to highlight various bill payment options available to customers and note steps taken in customer-facing business operations to mitigate the threat of COVID-19.
