Pay Utility Bills
View your Utility Bill / Online Energy Analysis
You have the option of paying your bill by automatic bank payment at no additional charge to you. Automatic payment will deduct your utility bill payment from your bank account. You will still receive a copy of your utility bill the first of each month from our office. Once your utility account is set up for automatic payment your bill will reflect the statement "Do Not Pay - Paid by Draft." The payment will be deducted from your bank account on the due date indicated on the bill.
If you would like to take advantage of this option, please print and fill out the Authorization for Automatic Payment Form (PDF) and return it to the Finance Department at City Hall or mail to: City of Saint Peter Finance Department
227 S Front Street, Saint Peter, MN 56082. Please send this to us by the tenth of the month.
