Pay a Utility Bill

Please always write your account number on your check and include the top portion of the bill with your payment to assure correct posting to your account.  Thank you in advance for your timely payment.

The City of Kirkland has changed the design of our utility bill.  Information about the new design can be found on our new utility bill example page.  The City has recently switched printing vendors, and there have been delays in the utility billing process.  If you haven't received your bill yet, you should be receiving it soon.  Please call or e-mail us if you have any questions about your account.

Payments are due on the billing date shown on your statement and become delinquent 30 days from the billing date. We are suspending all late fees, tag fees, and water shut offs until 30 days after the termination of the Governor's Executive Order on COVID-19.  Normally, a 10% late fee would be added on the 31st day. Additional bill notices will not be sent before the due date. Payments received after 3 p.m. on the due date will be credited to your account on the following day.



Our third party online billing service can process your utility payments (Paymentus).  This service can also send you Email notifications when a new bill is generated, and when a payment is made. You can either process one-time payments or recurring payments through Paymentus, and you can view a copy of your bill online. One-time payments post to your account within two business days.  Recurring payments process on your due date. Recurring payment options include credit card, debit card, and e-check.
