UTILITY BILL PAYMENTS
The City of Bryan offers several ways to make bill paying more convenient.
- Standard billing – With standard billing, you receive a statement once a month showing the charges on your account. Simply place your payment in the envelope included with your bill and mail it by the due date.
- Automatic payment – Payment can be made by automatic debit from your checking or savings account. You will still receive a statement showing your charges, and the amount due will be deducted from your account on the date due. Automatic payment is easy to set up, just fill out the Automatic Payment Form and return to the City Clerks office. No due dates to remember, and you will never have to worry about paying your bill again. Please link to Automatic Payments to learn more.
- Online payment – Utility customers now have the option of paying their utility bills with a credit card securely over the Internet. This is a safe and very convenient way to pay. Additionally, customers may select to have their utility bills emailed to them instead of having them mailed to their address. The online payment option allows you to review your current utility bill and make payments 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are pleased to provide this service to our customers. Just click on the Online Payments link to get started. You will need your utility account number and a valid email address to get set up. Discover, Mastercard and Visa are accepted. This is a fee-based service. A service fee of $3.95 will be applied to all credit card and e-check transactions made for utility payments and utility deposits. There is a maximum payment amount of $400 for credit card payments and a maximum payment amount of $125,000 for e-check utility payments and utility deposits.
