Utility online web payments:
The new online website does not offer the option of check payments.
We also offer a program called ACH. This option allows you to have the billed amount withdrawn from your account on the due date. Please contact the utilities department for a form or click on ACH Payments Document
Also for Late Fees:
Please be advised, effective immediately, late fees will be applied at 5:00pm on the due date listed on your City of Ottawa Utility bill. Drop Box Payments: To avoid late fees on a due date, after 3:00 pm, please bring your utility payment into the Utility office for processing.
