Payment Options

Budget Payment

If you like the convenience of knowing what your monthly utility bill will be, then the Budget Payment is for you.   If you have lived in your home for over one year, the Billing Department will review your account and provide you with the average monthly payment that will be due based on last years usage.   No big surprise payments in the winter or after the water meters are read.    Contact Diane or Annie for more information. 

Automatic Payment Plan

Don't like to write checks each month?  Tired of trying to get to the post office or city hall in bad weather?  Then the Automatic Payment Plan is perfect for you!   The City Billing Department will automatically withdraw your monthly net bill amount from your account on the 13th of each month.   If you have questions, or would like to receive an application, contact Diane or Annie
