Automatic Bill Payment

Minneapolis offers Automatic Bill Payment (ABP) for your water, sewer, solid waste services and stormwater. With ABP, you can pay your Utility Bill automatically from your checking or savings account. Proof of payment is displayed on your bank statement. ABP saves time and postage expenses and helps avoid hassles and late payments.

Please continue to pay until the "Auto Payment" notification is made on your bill.

Retail Cash Payments

Pay your bill in cash at a participating neighborhood retailer during their regular hours of operation. Create an EZ-Payslip online for the location you wish to pay your bill and bring it with you to make your payment. The participating retailers are CVS, Family Dollar Store, Ace Cash Express and Casey's. Create your EZ-Payslip. The service is FREE!

Follow the steps below and you can make as many cash payments as you need using the same Payslip.  Create it once and use it many times.

·         Select “Make a One-time Payment”

·         Enter your account number and house number and select “Next”

·         Enter a payment amount and select “Cash” – You will be able to pay more or less than this amount at the retail location

·         Choose your preferred payment location

·         Choose the delivery method (Printed slip or Mobile slip)

·         You will receive the EZ-Payslip link via the method selected

·         Take the EZ-Payslip to the selected retailer and make your cash payment

·         Take your receipt and save your digital EZ-Payslip to make future cash payments at that particular retail chain

Once your payment is made, confirmation of payment is sent to the City Utility Billing, which may help avoid interruption of service

Pay at Utility Billing Office

You can pay your bill in person at the Minneapolis Service Center, 505 4th Ave S, 2nd floor. Walk-in service hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and 7:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday. This office is closed on government holidays.

Master Billing

Master billing allows us to combine charges for multiple accounts for the same owner(s) and display them on one consolidated (master) bill rather than mailing a bill for each account individually. This not only reduces paper and postage costs, but allows customers the flexibility of having one bill with one due date which may minimize the time involved in tracking multiple bills with various due dates. This option also allows customers to make a single payment to cover charges for multiple accounts.

The Master Billing information and sign-up form can be found here.

Check Conversion

When you provide a check as a payment, you authorize us either to use information from your check to make a one-time electronic fund transfer from your account or to process the payment as a check transaction.  Funds may be withdrawn from your account on the same day we receive the payment, and you will not receive your check back from your financial institution.

Returned Checks

If the bank sends back your check because there is not enough money in your account, and your bill becomes past due, a 5% late payment charge and a $30.00 non-sufficient funds fee is added to your account.

Check Your Account Status

Call (612) 673-1114 and press "1" to check your account balance and hear when the last payment was received. Or, log on to Utility Billing Online.

Payments made on the web or phone post within two business day. Payments received in the mail, in person or with ABP are applied to the account the same day.
