Utility Bill Information


Bills for city utilities (water, sewer, and gas) are mailed to customers on or before the 15th day of each month.

The Auburn City Utility Office now offers Online Bill Viewing and Payment. This feature allows customers to view their bill at any time.  It is directly linked to the City office software and as soon as bills are processed for each month, the total due, (including current and previous usage) is displayed online.  This allows customers to see their bill prior to receiving the bill in the mail.

When making payments online through your bank, please allow for mailing time.  We do not receive electronic payments, so your bank will actually print and mail us a check.  This may mean that your payment will arrive late if it’s not scheduled well in advance.  Payments received after the end of the month will be charged a late fee.
