GUADALUPE ART GALA 2020
The City of Guadalupe is home to the Juda Baca Guadalupe Murals Project. Developed around 1990, with funding support from the Santa Barbara County Arts Commission, the Guadalupe Murals Project was intended to remind citizens of the rich history of the city of Guadalupe. The murals were originally installed at City Hall but were removed to prevent increasing exposure to the elements. Now the murals are again on public display at City Hall. For more information on these beautiful murals, and to view the murals, please click here.

Bill Pay Online
Click on the Bill pay banner to access the online bill pay service for the City of Guadalupe.
Warning – DOXO.com
There is an online bill pay website that appears to be affiliated with the City of Guadalupe, but that is not the case. There is a third party website, doxo.com that allows people to pay their water/sewer bill via the doxo.com website. However, doxo.com may charge the member extra fees, and the City of Guadalupe cannot control when we will receive the member payments, possibly resulting in a late payment from the resident or even a disconnection due to non-payment. To make sure you are paying the City of Guadalupe directly, visit our website at ci.guadalupe.ca.us and click on the “Utility Bill Pay” portal. The City of Guadalupe is not responsible for any late payment penalties or disconnections if payment is made using doxo.com and payments are received by the City of Guadalupe after the due date. As always, if you receive suspicious phone calls or emails from someone claiming to be a representative of the City of Guadalupe requesting payment, please contact our office as soon as possible.
