Using automatic bill payment

Automatic bill payment is an additional option for paying your bill from your checking or savings account. This service is managed by Utility Billing. It allows for payment only on the due date of your utility bill. 

To sign up, select "Minnesota" and "City of Minneapolis" from the dropdown menus and enter the account number from your utility bill. To avoid missing a payment, be sure to keep paying with your current method until "Auto Payment" is listed on your monthly bill.

Master billing

If you own more than one property in Minneapolis, you likely have more than one utility billing account. Instead of mailing separate bills for each account, we can combine all your accounts onto one master bill. Then you'll have just one bill and one due date to keep track of every month.
