Paying Your Bill
How & Where to Pay Your Utility Bill
To efficiently cover the service area, the City of Atlantic Beach produces monthly bills in three, primary cycles. The bills are due 14 days after the Bill Date on your bill. If you do not receive a bill, please call Utility Billing at 904-247-5816 for a copy.
Your payment must be received at City Hall by 5 p.m. on the due date to avoid a 10% late payment penalty. A delinquent notice will be mailed after the due date if your account is not paid in full, indicating the service cutoff date for nonpayment of the account.
If mailing your payment or using your financial institution's online bill payment product, please allow sufficient lead time to afford timely receipt by the City (3 to 5 business days are recommended). Delays in receipt due to postal issues, online banking practices, etc., may result in penalty assessment.
The City of Atlantic Beach offers several convenient methods to make your utility payments:
Automatic Bank Draft Payment: Most cost-effective option for both the customer and the City, and convenient for those who travel. You still receive your monthly bill to review, prior to payment. The customer authorizes the City to debit a checking or savings account at their designated financial institution. The funds are automatically drafted through electronic funds transfer (EFT) on the due date.
Print the Bank Drafting Authorization Agreement document.
Online Bank Payment
Make payment through your financial institution's online bill payment program. If you decide to use this option, please allow 3 to 5 business days for the processing of your payment through the banking system, since some institutions still drop a check in the mail, instead of sending the funds electronically.

This option is suitable for customers that do not need a receipt, or those that want to make payment after normal office hours. The drop box is emptied early in the morning and periodically during the day. If making payment on the due date, to minimize the chance of penalty assessment, other payment options are advised. Please only place checks or money orders in the drop box.
Include appropriate postage and return your payment in the envelope provided by the City, along with your payment stub. Payments are credited based on receipt date, not post-marked date.
