Autopay  is a program designed to provide our customers with the option of paying their utility bill through an automatic withdrawal from their checking or savings account on the due date of the bill. You save time by not having to write checks and also save the cost of postage or the cost of running to drop off your payment. You never have to worry about payments getting lost in the mail or late payments when you are out of town on business or on vacation. To obtain an autopay form, click the link below or pick up a form at City Hall.  Completed forms must be dropped off (in person) at City Hall.
