What is Auto Pay?
- Auto Pay is a convenient way to have your water and sewer bill automatically deducted from your checking or savings account. With Auto Pay you won't have to make individual online payments or write and mail a check each time you are billed, and you won't have to worry about late payments.
- Auto Pay and your bill is paid on time. You will still receive your regular monthly utility bill indicating the amount to be drafted from your bank account. Once the automatic deduction has begun, your bill will state **Auto Pay** instead of the amount due. Simply note the amount from your regular monthly utility bill into your checkbook.
- Auto Pay is a service provided free of charge by the City of Bend.
- Auto Pay is safe and secure. We use the most up to date security measures to ensure the safety and security of your banking information.
Please note: Automatic payment dates vary. For your specific deduction date, please call the City of Bend Finance Department (541) 388-5515. It can take up to two months for your automatic deduction to begin.

Please Note: 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 provides this service locally and outsourced it to Retail Lockbox Inc., a company located in Seattle. As a result, Retail Lockbox began processing City of Bend utility payments.
When the U.S. Postal Service closed the Bend mail processing center in 2015, utility payments went first to the Portland processing center, back to the City’s local post office box in Bend, and were then overnighted to Retail Lockbox in Seattle which caused delays in processing of payments. In order to better serve our customers, the City rented a post office box in Seattle and payments now travel directly to Retail Lockbox in Seattle.
