City of Mandan now offering online payment of utility bills
The City of Mandan Finance Department has announced that it now has an online credit card payment option for utility services. This is a free service with no convenience fee.
Visa, Mastercard and Discover cards are accepted. Account holders may pay by credit card online at cityofmandan.com.
The city is providing the new credit card feature as part of an effort to improve services while reducing costs, particularly staff time involved with processing payments.
Many residents prefer to pay their monthly bill from the city for water, street light and garbage service with a credit card. Until now, Mandan residents using credit cards were either calling in their number, paying in person at City Hall or signing up for monthly auto payment. Monthly auto payment remains a feature and also includes the option of drawing from a checking or savings account. Other check payment alternatives include the use of drop boxes at City Hall and grocery stores, as well as mail.
City staff also hopes to eventually add an online payment option for fines from law enforcement infractions, building permits and landfill charges.
