Payment Drop-Box

For your convenience, there is a 24-hour drop box in the lower parking lot of City Hall available for payments of your utility and tax bills.

  • Please include your payment stub, along with a check in a sealed envelope before depositing.
  • Payment deposited in the drop box on the due date (collected at 8:00 a.m. the following business morning) will be considered paid on time.  (For example, for bills that are due on a Friday - all payments collected from the drop box at 8:00 a.m. the following Monday will be considered on time.)

Please do not place cash in the drop box.

Credit Card Payments (ONLINE ONLY)

Taxes and utility bills can be paid by credit card; however, this must be done online using ACI Payments, Inc.  Because the cost to the city would be prohibitive and result in an increase to your taxes, we do not accept credit or debit card payments at City Hall.
