Online Water Bill Payment Works for Perris

The City of Perris’ recently created system allowing online water bill payments has caught on big-time.

Hundreds of Perris residents are taking advantage of the pay-online program each month and between 10 and 15 percent of all water bills are being paid through the Internet, said Accounting Supervisor Melinda Ward.

Paying water bills through the Internet takes less time and effort than coming to City Hall and paying in person.

“We have consistently exceeded our expectations and are more than pleased with the results so far,” she said. “It has become a convenient tool for Perris residents and property owners.”

Analysis of the online payments indicate the residents in all parts of Perris—from retirees living near Downtown and those in Monument Ranch and May Ranch are taking advantage of the new service. Owners of commercial property who live outside the City are using online bill paying as well, Ward said.

The online system also is available for new customers who want to sign up for water service, she said.
