Bill Payments

Preauthorized Payment Plan

Plan options

You have two plans to choose from:

Option 1: Due date plan

  • Payments are withdrawn from your bank account on the due date.

Option 2: Monthly budget billing plan

  • The monthly property tax amount is based on your previous years' total or annualized taxes. This amount will be withdrawn from your bank account on the last business day of each month, except in December. You will be notified in writing at the beginning of January with the withdrawl amount for January through July, and once the final tax bill has been calculated you will be notified of the withdrawl amount from August through November.
  • The monthly utility amount is based on your previous years usage history or a predetermined amount set by the Finance department. This amount will be withdrawn from your bank account on or around the 21st of each month. The settle up month is September. You will be notified in writing of the settle up amount and the new withdrawl amount for the upcoming year.
