Automatic Payment Auto Pay
Download Auto Pay form
Utility services may be billed directly to your checking account at any bank, saving you time, effort, and postage. Each month you will receive your energy statement as usual. Your bank will deduct the amount due from your checking account, based on your cycle date of the 5th, 15th, or 25th of each month. The deduction will be shown on your regular bank statement, as well as your next energy statement. You can either download an autorization form or pick one up at City Hall.
Energy costs vary during the year which can make budgeting difficult. Here is a way to average your energy bill so you pay a similar amount every month. It makes it easier to budget your expenses. Your budget amount is based on the previous year's actual usage applied to current rates. We continue to read your meter to assure your payments are on target with your consumption. Periodically, your payment amount may be adjusted up or down with changes in energy usage or energy costs, caused by changes in your lifestyle or unpredictable weather. To sign up, call the Billing Department at (319) 352-4252.
Budget Billing Reconciliation
Once a year in May, we will perform a reconciliation of your account. This means we will pay you if your budget payments have been too much, or we will bill you for the balance of your account if your payments have not been enough to cover your usage.
The bills are due on the 5th, 15th, or 25th of each month, depending on your billing cycle. If your due date is on a weekend or holiday, we will accept payments until closing time the following working day.
Should you find it difficult to pay your monthly energy bill, we will make every effort to develop a special payment schedule designed to fit your budget. The Billing Department may be reached at (319) 352-4252.
