Direct Debit Payment Agreement 

By completing this agreement, you are authorizing the City of Bowie to make your quarterly water/sewer bill payments by transferring funds from your bank account to the City of Bowie.

  1. Your bill for water/sewer services and fees is your written notification of the transaction. The total amount due printed on the face of the bill shall be transferred from your bank account on the due date indicated on the bill. The message on the bill stub will be notification that automatic bill payment option is in effect. Bills generated before the initiation of the automatic bill payment plan must be paid by cash, check or money order.
  2. If the scheduled transfer date falls on a weekend or legal holiday, the withdrawal will occur on the next regular business day.
  3. You may stop future transfers by notifying the City of Bowie in 15 business days before the draft date. You must also notify your financial institution of this action.
  4. Should your financial institution return a transfer without payment, the City of Bowie has the right to assess a fee equal to the fee charged for returned checks. The participant is then responsible to immediately remit full payment and the unpaid transfer fee with cash or a bank check. If the financial institution fails to honor the transfer request participation in the Bill Payment Plan will be terminated immediately.
  5. If you have questions, contact the Finance Department at 301-809-3016.
