How do I set up automatic bank drafting?
Automatic bank drafting is a convenient way of paying your utility bill and there is no additional cost to you. Just click the link below and fill out the Bank Draft Request Form, you must provide a copy of a voided check. You can also sign up at the town hall during business hours. Every other month on the due date, or the workday after a weekend or holiday, your bill will be automatically drafted. You will continue to receive a water/sewer bill every other month, so that you can continue to monitor your water usage. The bill will indicate that the account is on bank draft. Once you submit your bank draft request, the first bill you receive after applying will not be drafted to allow time to pre-note the account. The second billing you receive after applying will indicate bank draft on the bill and process on the due date thereafter. Any draft returned by the bank because of insufficient funds will be removed from the bank draft program and charged a return check fee of $25.00.
