TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WBRC) - The vendor used by the city of Tuscaloosa for online utility payments announced a ransomware attack to their internal systems Monday.

Because of this, the city has temporarily suspended all online water bill payments.

“The safety and security of our citizens has always been the top priority of The City of Tuscaloosa,” said Tuscaloosa Chief Information Officer Chuck Crocker. “We will continue working closely with our vendors to ensure that all steps are taken to best serve and protect our community.”
