[07/30/12]   The City of Fort Smith Water Department wants to inform you that we are changing the payment processor for our online banking effective August 1, 2012. Due to the change you will not be able to schedule a payment past July 31st until after the transition. When you log on in August, you will need to enter your banking information again because your stored data cannot be carried over. Please note that the payment process will have a different flow to it than before, due to the new way we have to interact with the processor. We apologize for this inconvenience, but once the change is made everything will be back to normal in August.
