Water Billing

The Utility Billing Division is responsible for accurate and timely billing of the city's utility bills. In addition to accepting payments, one of our customer service representatives can handle questions about your bill or requests for service installation and disconnects.

The City of Manhattan divides its billing into three cycles — the 10th, 20th and 30th of each month. Your location within the City determines your billing cycle. Customers' bills are due in 10 days and become delinquent 10 days after that and will be subject to cut-off.

The City of Manhattan accepts utility payments through the following means:
  • Mail to: P.O. Box 309, Manhattan, KS 66505
  • Automatic bank draft
  • Online billing
  • By cash, check or credit card at the Customer Service office in City Hall, 1101 Poyntz Ave.
  • In dropboxes located at Dillons and HyVee supermarkets and at City Hall 

Online Utility Billing

Use the City of Manhattan's online utility billing feature for 24/7 convenience. View billing and usage information, as well as account payment and consumption history online anytime.
The online water/sewer utility billing option will not affect bill payment deadlines. All payments are due on the day printed on the water/sewer utility bill that customers receive in the mail (or by email once you sign up for online billing).

Automatic Bill Payment Plan

If it is more convenient, monthly utility bills may be paid automatically through either a checking or savings account. When this option is chosen, the Customer Service office sends the amount due directly to the customer's bank, and it will be paid on the due date. The bank will then notify the customer of the amount paid through the bank statement. The customer can receive their monthly water statement — showing "bank account drafted for" and the amount of the water bill — either on paper or electronically.

Auto Pay is also available within the online utility payment site and can be accomplished using either checking account or credit card. See the instructions above for details.
