Automatic Bank Draft (ACH)

Never be late on your utility bill again! Take advantage of ACH which deducts the amount of your utility bill each month from your bank account. It will save you time and money by avoiding penalty charges. To sign up for ACH, you must complete an authorization form and provide BMU with a voided check or savings deposit ticket.


If you still prefer to pay your bill face-to-face with someone, you will still have the option to make payments in our office at Berea City Hall, 212 Chestnut Street, in the Finance Department.  We are open Monday – Friday 7:30 AM – 4:00 PM, and accept cash, check, or credit cards.

We also have a drive thru at 212 Chestnut Street open from 7:30 AM – 4:00 PM Monday – Friday, for customers to make payments.
