Utility Bill Pay Options
Listed below are the ways in which you can pay your utility bill.
NOTE: The Village has become aware that some residents are experiencing an issue with the online bill payment portion of the Village website. The Google Chrome Internet browser may indicate the Village payment site is not secure and does not allow you to proceed. Google recently sent out an update to their browser that is causing many secure sites to appear as if they are not. The Village website is secured, and staff is working to change the secure site certificate to accommodate the changes made by Google. In the meantime, if citizens utilize Internet Explorer as their browser, they can securely make payments. The Village will place a notification on this page when the changes have been completed and verified.
Online Account Access
Online Account Access allows the user to view usage, billing and payment history for the most recent year, as well as set up their own recurring withdrawals from either a checking or savings account, or from a debit or credit card.
- If you're a first-time user, register using the option “New User.”
- If you forgot your user name and password, select “Email Password.”
- Once you are registered, select “Registered Users.”
Once you've become a registered user, you can:
- Make a one-time immediate payment using your VISA/MasterCard or pay via ACH-Check option; use this option if a bill is overdue and you wish immediate payment
- Establish a recurring payment with either a credit card or a withdrawal from your account (this option will automatically pay your utility bill on or up to three days prior to the due date for the current billing); you may also elect to stop automatic payments from this option. Do not use this method for a past due balance.
- Access a summary, usage chart or transaction history. This option provides information regarding your utilities and allows you to compare consumption for any two years. You also can review billing and transaction information.
All payments processed via Online Account Access are immediate. Recurring payments are charged/debited on or up to three days prior to the billing due date; most are effective the date the bill is due. Please note that any changes in recurring accounts should be completed five days prior to the billing due dates, and recurring payments should not be used for past due bills.
All customers will continue to receive a bill. If enrolled in recurring payments, customers will continue to receive a bill noting “Do not Pay."
