Port Angeles - The City of Port Angeles continues to investigate a data breach that was first reported on July 24th, 2017.

As a precaution, on-line credit and debit card payment services have been shut down during the investigation. However, the city is now able to accept credit cards, in person, at the customer service counter in City Hall for utility, permit, and park payments.

Debit cards will also be accepted, as a credit transaction, as long as the cards have a credit company logo (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover).

We spoke with Tess Agesson, the interim Finance Director for the city, about the status of the current investigation of the city's computers being conducted by Navigant Consulting.

Navigant started its investigation on Thursday, July 27th. Navigant Consulting specializes in forensic examinations of computer systems.

In accordance with city policies, and for the protection of customer’s personal banking information, the city will not accept credit card information over the phone, or written on the back of invoices.
