The City of Ballinger has announced a new method for water customers to submit payment of their monthly water utility bills. City of Ballinger customers may sign up for e-bill and e-pay services on the city's website www.ballinger-tx.com and view and pay their bill online. Customers may set up the online payment option by going to the city's website, click the "view/pay your bill" tab at the top of the page, enter the required registration information, and click continue. Customers will then see a message that the registration was successful. A verification email will be sent to your email address. Once the email is received to verify registration, sign into e-commerce with your user ID, password, and verification code given in the email, then click "Verify." The user will then go to the e-commerce menu, click view and pay bill, click add an account, enter in the water account number, which is a number consisting of four numbers, a dash, or hyphen, followed by two additional numbers. Next, enter the five digit pin, which is found at the top left corner of the larger part of the bill. This number may also be obtained by calling Ballinger City Hall at 365-3511. Next, click continue. The following page will list the terms and conditions. The user will enter the water bill account number at the bottom, then click "I Agree." Once the account information is verified, the user will receive another email confirming that the account has been verified. Log back into the account once the verification email is received. Next, click view and pay bill. The account information will be displayed on the screen. The account balance may show zero.
While there are several steps involved in the setup process, this will allow customers to pay their water bill without business hour restriction and waits in lines at the water department. For further information, contact Ballinger City Hall at 365-3511.
