Utility Billing Information
There is no fee to set up an online account. It is fast, convenient and easy. You have access to financial information (current due, last payment, amount past due, etc.), address information, transaction information, and consumption information. To sign-up all you need is your account number, last payment amount, and an email address.
To make a payment, you must first create a member login and register a utility account or use the quick pay method. For assistance please see HELP TOPICS, located in the sidebar to the right. There is a convenience fee of $1.25 per transaction. This includes accounts enrolled in Auto Pay.
*NOTICE FOR AUTO PAY* - When scheduling your account for Auto Pay, be aware of the due date on your utility bill. *DUE DATES VARY EACH MONTH. The online system will automatically draft the entire balance amount that is on the account on the day you choose.
Select the day the utility bill is due or a date prior to the due date.
*If you choose a day after the due date, your account will draft the amount due, plus any late fees incurred,
**if you choose two or more days after your due date, the account will draft the past due bill, the late fees and the utility bill that was newly generated after the due date.
All Utility Payments are made in the Utility Billing section located at the top of the page.
Payments received after 4:00pm CT will be processed on the next business day.
