KISSIMMEE, Fla., October 24, 2007 – In a move to provide greater service and convenience, Kissimmee Utility Authority today announced they have waived the $1.50 transaction fee for utility payments made at area 7-Eleven convenience stores.

The transaction fee previously charged by Vcom will now be paid by the utility, effective immediately.

KUA formed a strategic alliance with 7-Eleven in 2004 to offer its customers convenient bill payment locations in stores throughout Florida, including 15 in Kissimmee. Each store contains a Vcom or “virtual commerce” kiosk where a bill can be paid using cash, checking account or ATM debit card.

KUA customers are reminded to bring their bill or account number with them to make a Vcom payment.

Founded in 1901, KUA (www.kua.com) is Florida’s sixth largest community-owned utility providing electric and telecommunication services to 170,000 residents in five Central Florida counties.
