Utility Bill Payment Options

Automatic payment from your financial institution:

To start automatic payment:

  • Return the form to the City of Albany Utility Billing, P.O. Box 945, Albany, OR 97321
  • Must include an original VOIDED check for the account you want to use for your Automatic Payment

Once we receive the application, it may take one to two billing periods to be enrolled. You will see an "auto pay" note on your bill once you are enrolled. You will still receive a bill from us each month. It will tell you how much money you owe and the due date when the funds will be withdrawn from your account.

To stop automatic payment service:
  • Complete and sign the Direct Debit Cancellation Form
  • Return the completed form to the City of Albany Utility Billing, P.O. Box 945, Albany, OR 97321.
