Municipal Authority Establishes Electronic Payment Service

Customer Assistance Needed for Success

For water and sewage customers using on-line banking we need your help.  To begin in May, the Municipal Authority is establishing through their utility billing software provider a service that results in bank issued payments being made electronically. As a result, payments will be received much quicker, typically within a 24-hour period. For this to be successful we need customers to verify the accuracy of their Account Number when issuing payment through a bank. The Account Number is listed on the billing card.

 

The Payee Name should be one of the following:  BTMA/BTSA (preferred use), BTMA, BTSA, Brighton Township Municipal Authority, Brighton Township Sewage Authority.

 

Using an incorrect Account Number or Payee Name could result in the payment being rejected for electronic service.

 

What are the Benefits?

Hundreds of customers have their water and sewage payments issued through on-line banking. Prior to this service, those payments were received by paper check through the mail, sometimes taking up to 10 days for receipt in the Municipal Building. With the new service, payments will be transferred electronically, much like other payments made with on-line banking to electric, gas or credit card companies.

 

The service benefits our water and sewer customers who can avoid late payment penalties through quicker payment application. It also benefits the Authority by eliminating the handling of paper checks and the steps associated with their processing.

 

Other methods of payment are available and can be reviewed by going to the Water/Sewage Authorities Page in the Resident's Center on this web site.
