NOTICE to eBill / ePay Users
eBills are the paperless way to receive and pay your utility bills online and thus eliminate costly paper bills sent through the U.S. mail. You have the option sign up or not. Once signed up for eBills (paperless billing) you will no longer receive paper bills sent via regular mail.

If you wish to pay online, you are required to sign up for eBills (or ePay). Your regular paper bills will then no longer be sent in the U.S. mail. You have the option of viewing and/or paying your bill online. You do NOT have to pay it online. If you wish to receive paper bills via the US Mail AND sign-up for eBills/ePay, you must call the City Hall and request continuation of paper bills via the US Mail.
