The worry-free way to pay your bill. With this service, the amount of your monthly bill is automatically deducted from your bank account and credited to your utility account. There is no set-up fee or charge associated with this method of payment. To set up Automated Bank Draft, simply download and fill out the ACH Automatic Bank Draft Form located below and drop it off or mail it to our office, along with a voided check.
Payment Drop-off Location
You may pay your bill in person at our office address. We accept cash, check, or money order in-person. If you would like to pay by debit or credit card, please use the online payment service.
On-Site After-Hours Dropbox
You can use the on-site dropbox to submit payments after-hours; however, payments made through the dropbox are not processed until the next business day--regardless of the date on the payment. Cash cannot be accepted through the on-site dropbox.
Payment Through Financial Institution Online Bill Pay
Many financial institutions such as major banks offer their customers the ability to pay their bills via an online bill payment service (through your bank's website). Normally, these services debit the customer's checking or savings account to pay the bill. Depending on the financial institution, they may or may not charge a fee for the service. Payments may take up to seven business days to post to the customer's account. Please consult with your bank for more information.
