Pay Water and Sewer Utility Bills Online

The City of Essexville accepts Utility payments electronically.  The City contracts with Official Payments Corporation (OPC) to facilitate these payments using major credit and debit cards with a Visa or MasterCard logo.  Payments may be made via the internet at OPC or through the the Interactive Voice Response (IVR) telephone system at 1-800-2PAY-TAX.
Please note OPC charges a convenience fee for processing these payments.

During the transaction process you will be informed of the charges to your credit card.  Your credit card statement will show two line items on your bill, the utility bill amount and the the convenience fee.

The following information information will be required to make the payment using OPC:

  • Users first and last name
  • Mailing address
  • Daytime phone number
  • E-mail address
  • Payment amount
  • Credit or debit card number, expiration date and primary identifier
  • 11-digit utility account number located on your utility bill
  • Jurisdiction Code for the City of Essexville which is 3292
The system performs an online authorization of the credit or debit card payment and returns to you a unique confirmation number of the approved payment.  Typically, a payment session lasts approximately three minutes.  Your payment is deposited to the City's bank account within two to three business days.  If for any reason the credit or debit card authorization is denied, the system advises you that the payment was not completed and you will have to contact your financial institution where the card was issued.
