After receiving some feedback from Water, Gas and Light customers, the WG&L board approved Wednesday morning to change the way it sends out bills.
Customers will have the choice of either continuing to receive paper bills or being able to view an electronic bill.
Tom Berry, interim general manager, says this will cost no more than it costs now to send out the paper bills. He adds that some money will be saved since they would no longer be paying the postage to send out as many paper bills.
"It was approved today," Berry said. "It's just a matter of getting through the process of sending the file to the billing provider and other logistics."
Customers will continue to be able to pay online through Western Union.
