Home banking

Pay with online home banking through your personal financial institution or bank.

ACH Enrollment

The City of Santa Clara's ACH Enrollment Form must be fully completed and processed by the City of Santa Clara in order to be used as a payment option. A stipulation of emailing the City of Santa Clara (on the day of transfer) must be agreed upon in order to take advantage of this payment option. Within that email the total amount being transferred/ date and a breakdown of account numbers and amounts to be paid must be included.

Please be aware that the City of Santa Clara will post payment(s) on the utility account(s) on the day in which we receive notification from the bank--not on the day in which the transfer is authorized by you/company. Because of weekends and holidays, please transfer funds 3-4 days prior to the bills' due date in order to avoid any possible late fees from incurring on the account(s).
