Utility Billing

We are experiencing high call volumes due to our new Online Utility Bill Payment System. We appreciate your patience as we assist customers.

In case you’ve missed previous announcements: To better serve our community, we launched a new Online Utility Bill Payment System on December 19, 2022, and discontinued our service with the prior vendor that handled online and automatic payments. Due to the security of your payment and personal information, we were not able to transfer your data from one system to another. As a result, customers must register with the new Online Utility Bill Payment System in order to pay online and/or use auto pay.

How to Register for Automatic Online Utility Payments

To register in the new system and re-establish Auto Pay:

  • Scroll down this page and click on the Online Utility Bill Payment System box
  • Click on the green box: Customer Registration and One-time Payments
  • Complete registration

Other Payment Options

We welcome phone payments using our automated phone system, mail-in payments, and drop-box payments. See information below for details.

The Utility Billing department is available from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. Utility Billing handles water, sewer, and stormwater billings and assists customers with new service, account information, and discontinuation of services. For assistance, please call (360) 491-5616, or email, UtilityBilling@ci.lacey.wa.us.


To better serve our community, we launched a new online payment portal for our utility customers on December 19, 2022.

You will be able to access the prior 24 months of statements on our new payment portal, but we are still working on this feature and do not yet have statements available to you.

If you have any questions, please contact our Utility Billing Department at (360) 491-5616 or UtilityBilling@ci.lacey.wa.us.
