Paying Your Bill Automatically
To enroll in the Village’s AutoPay System (ACH) you’ll need to complete the form authorizing the Village to debit your preferred bank account on the 10th of the month. There are no additional fees charged for ACH payments when you enroll through the Village. Completed ACH forms need to be returned to the Village Office.
*Please be aware that when enrolling in ACH, one billing cycle is required as a part of the prenote process before payments are automatically deducted. You will receive notice on your bill when your account will be auto debited.
Paying Your Bill Online
To pay online you may register your account through Invoice Cloud, our new electronic utility payment service. Registration is not required to view your bills and/or to make one time payments, with registration you will have access to the customer dashboard and to enroll in Auto Pay or Paperless Billing.
