Paying Your Bill via ACH
Thank you for your interest in setting up ACH payment to the City of Tumwater for your Tumwater utility billings.
This is not to sign up for our recurring Autopay program which automatically pulls your monthly utility payment from your bank account or credit card. This service is to provide information to the City to ensure proper receipting of your ACH payments when you initiate ACH payments from your bank (e.g. Bill Payer). If you intended to sign up for our Autopay service, please visit our Make a Payment page for detailed information and instructions.
The following paragraphs outline the terms and conditions necessary for setup of ACH payments to the City of Tumwater.
