You will still receive your regular monthly utility statement, indicating the amount that is scheduled to be automatically paid, and the date that it is due.
For your convenience, we offer the following forms of automatic payments through Invoice Cloud, our online customer portal:

- Recurring Payments allow you to specify a date that your bill will be paid each month.The balance on your account will be deducted automatically every month, on the specific date that you have chosen.
- Scheduled Payments are one-time automatic payments. You can choose a date, method of payment, and the amount to pay. When the specified date occurs, the single payment will be automatically processed.

Why Do Payments Go to Seattle?
In March 2013 the City of Bend changed their utility payment mailing address to a Seattle PO Box. Utility payments were previously processed by the Bank of the Cascades. The bank no longer provided this service locally and outsourced it to Retail Lockbox Inc, a company located in Seattle. As a result, Retail Lockbox Inc began processing City of Bend utility payments. To better serve our customers, the City rents a Seattle post office box, so that payments can travel directly to Retail Lockbox in Seattle.
