The Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) option allows you to pay your Town of Erie utility bill directly from your bank account each month without ever having to write a check. Simply complete the Authorization Form and attach a voided check to enroll in the program. Payments will be transferred from your account the day the payment is due. If the due date falls on a Town holiday or weekend, the transaction will take place on the next business day.
Once we receive an authorization form and voided check from you, we will enroll you into the EFT program. It will take approximately one month for the automatic payments to begin, as it will need to prenote prior to beginning. Once enrolled, the message on the bottom of your utility bill will state “Do not pay. EFT funds will be deducted on your bill due date.” Continue to pay your bill until this message appears on your monthly bill.
If you wish to dispute your utility bill, you must notify the Town five days prior to the transaction date to cancel or suspend the automatic withdrawal.
If the Town processes your payment through the EFT program and the transaction is rejected, a service fee of $25.00 will be added to your utility billing account. If the Town receives two rejections within a twelve-month period for your account, you will be removed from the program.
Completed authorization forms can be submitted to Town Hall, or can be sent in via:
