Water and Sewer Billing

Online Bill Pay

Facebook Button

The City of St. Johns will either mail or email your bill. A minimum bill is generated even if there is no usage.  Water/sewer bills are based by usage per 1,000 gallons, so therefore every 1,000 gallons of water used also generates 1,000 gallons of sewer. 

If you have purchased a residential or commercial property, please fill out this Name Change Form. By filling out & submitting this form, this will get the water/sewer account set up with your information.  Please note that there is an option to have your bill emailed (no paper copy is mailed), simply fill your email address where indicated & you will receive each bill via email.  

If you are renting a property, a rental affidavit is required to place your information on the account.  Please contact city offices at (989) 224-8944, ext. 282 for information.  With the affidavit, a copy of your lease agreement, a $250 rental deposit (which is applied to your final bill when you move out), and a copy of your driver's license are required to place your name onto the account.  

There are several options on how you can pay your water/sewer bill, click the underlined item to get started. You can search by account number (located on your bill), name, address or parcel number:

Sign-in or register your account.  You can find your account number on the water/sewer bill or contact city offices at (989) 224-8944, ext. 282.

Payments can also be made by calling (844) 623-1635. Several payment options are available including signing up for paperless bills and email/text reminders. This fee would be less the 10% penalty assessed if the bill is not paid on time. 

Cash, check or money order (payable to City of St. Johns) is also accepted. Payment can either be mailed, dropped off at city offices (1st floor, Suite 1100, Clinton County Courthouse) or placed in the white drop box (with green lettering) which is located in the courthouse parking lot near Cass Street. Please have your bill stub with your payment or your account number written on your check. 

A 10% penalty is added after the due date for any unpaid bill. There is a $30 fee for any returned checks. If a delinquent amount is owing from the previous year and is not paid the following year by May 22, the unpaid balance will go onto the property owner's taxes plus administration fee. Payments can be made at any time.
