Utility Billing
The City of Pella bills for electric, water, sewer, and garbage/recycling services. Bills are mailed out the last business day of the month and are due on the 20th of the following month. Payments can be made in person at City Hall or in the payment drop box by the front door. Payments can also be dropped off at Hy-Vee or in the alley behind the library.  

The City of Pella has a user-friendly online payment system, Paymentus, which is available to our customers 24 hours per day for the payment of City utility bills.  Online features include:  the capability to pay by credit and debit cards, as well as e-checks; real time payment confirmation; current balance; past billing statements; and the ability to register for e-billing.  The system also offers a "Pay Now" feature that allows for quick payment without having to register an account.  To access the new system, please click the Online Bill Pay link on the City's homepage.  The new system also offers Interactive Voice Recognition (IVR), which allows payment over the phone.  To access the IVR system, please dial 844.546.8162.  Debit and credit card payments are also accepted at the City of Pella utility billing offices at 825 Broadway.  

The City of Pella also offers CityMatic.  On the 20th of each month, the City will initiate a withdrawal of your monthly bill from your bank account.  If you have questions about utility billing, please contact City Hall at 641.628.4173 or email Utility Billing.  

Residents may choose to put their account on budget payments after living at an address for 12 months. Budget accounts are recalculated annually in the month of October.
