Things to remember while enrolled in bankdrafting:
- To prevent possible double payments, please do not set up recurring monthly payments on our website, or on any other bank or bill-pay websites.
- Payment extensions are not allowed, as your monthly bill due dates can not be changed.
- Requests to cancel your bankdrafting, or to have Customer Services change your existing bank information, must be submitted at least 7 days before the bill’s due date.
- Insufficient funds in your bank account (to cover the monthly payment) will be handled as a non-clearable item. Your bank as well as Arlington Utilities will assess the appropriate non-clearable item service charges.
- New Customers: if you initially enrolled in bankdrafting to waive the $80.00 security deposit on your new account, remember that it was a 12-consecutive-month commitment, which started with the date that the deposit was waived. If you opt to cancel your bankdrafting before that 12-month period has passed, the $80.00 security deposit will be assessed back onto your account.
