You are able to pay your utility bill by cash, check, money order or automatic debit (click here for an automatic debit authorization form). This payment may be brought into our office, mailed or dropped off anytime using the payment box located on the front of the administration building.

Online Accounts and Email Billing

By creating an online account, you are able to view payment and usage history, a detailed breakdown of your utility bill, and set up email billing.

Email billing is the quickest way to receive your utility bill. After creating your online account you will have an option to “Go Paperless.” When email billing is set up, you will receive your utility bill the day it is created and you still will have the option to view your bill in a PDF format.
