Bills are due by the 12th of each month.
 Avoid late fees by using Automatic ACH.
For questions about your bill, call City Hall at (620) 327-4412.

Payment Options
  • Automatic ACH from your checking account with No additional Fees. (Recommended)
    The draft can be taken out either the 2nd or the 11th of the month.
    You will still receive your bill every month.

    Note: Your bank's online bill pay can take 7 days or more to reach us by USPS.
    Even if the bank takes the money out of your account prior to the due date, if the online bill pay check does not arrive at the city office in time, you will be assessed a late penalty.
    We recommend Automatic ACH to avoid any late penalties, the printing of checks, and mailing cost.
