  •  E-Billing and Online Bill Pay
    Posted on 08/03/2020 at 9:10 am

    Ebills are a convenient, secure, faster and environmentally friendly way of receiving your utility bill. And, they not only reduce waste, but they reduce postage costs too. Enrolling in eBill cancels your paper bill, but the eBill still contains the same information you are used to receiving on your paper bill. Email notifications are sent each month as soon as your new bill is available.

    To enroll in eBill, simply contact Manchester City Hall at 563-927-3636.

    You can also access your account information and pay your bill online 24/7 with on-line bill pay. View your payment history, consumption history and previous billing history. No more late payments, no check writing and stay up to date with the click of a button. To set up, simply go to mail.manchester-ia.org. Enter a valid email, create a password, and have your account number and location (as it appears on your bill) handy. That’s it!
