Automatic Bill Pay Through Deduction

The City of Vermilion now offers customers the option of paying their utility bill electronically. Funds are transferred from the customer's checking account directly to the City to pay for all services that are on the City's utility bill.


How do I sign up for electronic payments?

Simply complete the authorization form and return it to the City along with a voided check. This will help ensure that your transactions are appropriately posted. Allow 2-3 months for processing and withdrawals to start. Continue to pay your bill via other methods of payment until a message appears on your bill showing the withdrawal of electronic payment.

When are the bills paid?

Payments are deducted on the due date of your billing statement each month.

How does it work?

The City of Vermilion's bank will instruct your bank to deduct the entire amount of your utility bill from your checking account. Your bank will deduct your payment amount and forward the payment electronically to the City of Vermilion's bank.

How can I be sure that the bill was actually paid?

The payments will be shown on your monthly statement from your financial institution.

Will I receive a notice of payment due from the City of Vermilion each month?

Yes. The City will continue to mail your utility bills to you as usual. However, in the message box on the bill it will clearly state that your account has been set up to have payments made electronically.

If I don't have a check or receipt, how can I prove I have paid my bill?

Your monthly statement from your financial institution will include information on the payments that you have made, including the name of the payee, the amount of the payment, and the date it was paid.

What if the amount of the payment notice from the bank is incorrect or I want to dispute my bill?

If you have questions or concerns regarding your bill or the amount due, you should contact the Vermilion Utilities Billing Department at (440) 204-2420.

What if I no longer want to pay my bill by electronic payment?

You must notify the Vermilion Utilities Department 30 days in advance in writing that you want to stop paying your bills electronically.
