ACH

Automatic Monthly Bill Payment

We have a way for you to pay your bill that is quick, easy and convenient!  Sign up today and pay your bill through ACH with automatic monthly payments from your checking account.  ACH or Automated Clearing House is an electronic payment network.

How it works:

1.  We send you your bill with the balance due amount.

2. You note in your checkbook how much to deduct.

3. You're done!

That's right ...it's that simple.  No stamps, no mail, no envelopes.

To sign up, print and fill out the ACH form using the link below, attach a voided check and return it to our office.  There is a slight cost for us associated with this, so we will be charging a 50 cent transaction fee each month for this payment that will show on your bill when we send it to you.  This is comparable to the cost of the stamp you probably already use every month.

We are hoping that many of you choose to use this payment service.  The convenience, simplicity and security of this automated payment service makes paying your bill extremely easy.  ACH payments are processed around the 5th of each month.  Please call the office at 
253-847-8617 if you have any questions or would like us to mail you an ACH form.
