You asked and we answered.

As of April 23, you can now use an American Express credit card to pay your sewer, stormwater, and water bill online, whether you are using the one-time payment option or through the Customer Self-Service system.

“Our Customer Service team helps over 1,000 customers pay their bills each day and answer questions about their sewer, stormwater, and water bill ,” says Customer Service Director Kathy Koch. “When our customers give us feedback, we listen. And now customers have one more option when paying their utility bill.”
