Automatically pay for your water/sewer bill each month

From: http://www.eastgr.org

Did you know the City offers direct payment of your water/sewer bill each month on the due date at no cost?

You don't need to go online with your bank each month and set up the payment and enter the amount...just fill out an enrollment form once, turn it in to the City, and your payment will be taken out of your checking or savings account each month on the 30th. No hassle. No late fees when you forget to pay the bill.

You will still receive your statement early each month as usual showing the meter readings and the amount due. You can still call with questions or if you feel the meter was read incorrectly. But then just file it away instead of writing a check or paying it online.
