We also offer the convenience of direct debiting a bank account at any federally insured bank in the country. Fill out the Direct Debit form and return it to our office. If this option is selected, your bank account will be debited the 15th of each month. You will continue to receive your bill around the 25th of the previous month.
We accept Visa, Master Card and Discover credit cards. Contact the office to provide the necessary information for this transaction to occur. We are required to pass a convenience fee along to the customer, which is a small percentage of your bill. We will inform you of the amount before processing the charges.
Rock Rapids Municipal Utilities also allows residential customers to enter into an average monthly payment (AMP) plan. The cost of your utility usage is spread evenly over 12 months, guaranteeing your utility bill is the same each month. These plans are reviewed yearly to see if your monthly payment needs to be adjusted. If you are interested in this plan, stop in the office or call 472-2503 for the average monthly payment on your residence. There is an application form that would have to be signed before this option can begin.
