Electronic Debit Program for Utility Payment

The City of Clewiston Utilities is pleased to offer you a fast and easy way to pay your monthly utility bill. With our Electronic Debit Program, your utility bill is automatically deducted from your checking/savings account or credit card monthly. You save the time of preparing your monthly payment and sending it in.


With your authorization, your bank will automatically deduct the amount of your utility bill from your checking or savings account. Each month, the money is transferred from your account to our account on the date you specify. You may choose payment dates of the 5th, 15th or 25th of each month.


You can also authorize the City to deduct the amount of your bill from your credit card (Visa or MasterCard).


Upon completion of the authorization forms, a series of tests will be accomplished among us, our bank and your bank and/or credit card company. These tests will verify compatibility of our recorded information. Testing will take one billing cycle, so after you sign up expect to pay one bill in the traditional way. By your second bill, the program will be in place on your account. You'll know the program is in place when you see the statement "Do Not Pay" on your utility bill.


To be eligible for the Electronic Debit Program, your account must be free of any checks returned for insufficient funds for the last 24 months and be in a current payment status.


To sign up for the Electronic Debit Program, stop by our office and a customer service representative will provide you with the necessary authorization forms. You will need to submit a voided check if payment is to be deducted from your checking/savings account.
