How come I am getting an error of 'ERROR PROCESSING TRANSACTION'?

If you are using a favorite or bookmark to access the online service, the favorite is including an expired session ID. Since the session ID is expired it causes the application to give you this error.


  1. Navigate our website to get to the Utility Billing online application which will provide you with a new session ID each time.
  2. Edit your favorite to remove the session ID portion of the URL.  (i.e. https://secure1.olympiawa.gov/utilitybilling/(q3ka5qjo5i0hjtvac0kyke2d)/default.aspx)
  3. Use this link to re-launch the application which will provide you with a new session ID.
