Automatic Bank Drafting
You can choose to have your utility bill drafted directly from your bank account each month on your due date.
If you choose this option, you are still sent a utility bill each month, but you do not have to mail in a payment.
Your bank account will be drafted on the due date printed on your utility bill. To sign up for this program we will
need you to complete an authorization form and provide a voided check from the account you would like drafted each month.
Just stop by our office or follow this link to print the authorization. Bank draft
After you have twelve bills issued you can choose to sign-up for the City’s Average Billing Program. This programs helps
reduce the peaks and valley in your utility bills. This program is an average billing program that recalculates your average

many levelized billing programs.
