Our new online bill payment option saves you time and gives you more flexibility in how you pay your City utility bill. If you have an internet connection and an e-mail address, you can now pay your utility bill online. It’s fast, it’s easy, and you no longer have to write a check each month or find a stamp when it’s time to send in your payment.
If you are a current City utility “autopay” customer you don’t need to do a thing; your payment will continue to be processed in the same manner. If you wish to set up paperless billing or use your credit card for autopay, please click here.
Please remember you are responsible to terminate your autopay arrangement when you move.
How It Works:
We have partnered with Xpress Bill Pay, the premier provider for online bill payment systems. When you sign up for online bill payment you get a unique password that you use to access your personal account at XpressBillPay.com. Every month we’ll send you a reminder e-mail to let you know when your bill is online. Then, just log in through your web browser and view your bill, which will look like the paper statement you’re familiar with. Select a payment type — credit card, debit card, or electronic funds transfer — enter the information, and you’re done! It’s that easy, and it only takes you a few minutes each month.
