Payment by Bank Draft

The often preferred and most economical method of payment for services billed on the City Services Utility Statement is by bank draft. (This includes billings for Water and Sewer, Stormwater, Solid Waste Collection, Household Hazardous Waste, etc.) Under this payment option, the bank account of businesses and individuals who use this free service is drafted for the amount billed on the monthly or quarterly City Services Statement. This automatic payment option provides for the timely and convenient payment of City utility services.

Payment by Internet 

The City is now accepting online payments for parking tickets, water and sewer utility bills, privilege license renewals, building inspection permits, temporary right of way closures and street performer licenses. Shelter reservations may also be paid online. Payments can be made using American Express, Discover, MasterCard or Visa.
