Payment Drop-off Location

You may pay your bill at our office address.    We accept cash, check, or money orders. To avoid longer wait times, please note that Mondays, Fridays and the first day after a holiday are normally very busy. ABS has a stand alone drop box on the West side of the ABS building.   You can just drive up to the box and drop your payment off without getting out of your vehicle.  

Payment Through your Bank

Many financial institutions such as major banks offer their customers the ability to pay their bills via an online bill payment service (through your bank's website) whereas the customer initiates the bank to cut a check for the amount of the bill.  ABS asks that the check written by the bank have the customer's name, account number and meter reading on the check.   The bank needs to know that bills are due by the end of the day on the 15th of every month. 

PRE-PAY OPTION:   Some members opt to Prepay 3 months, 6 months, 12 months worth of billing and keep a CREDIT on Member's account.    Member decides how many gallons should be charged each month and ABS will deduct that amount from the Prepay credit on the account.    Member will receive a letter one month prior to when the prepay credit will be used to ask if member wants to continue with prepay option.    The danger is that there might be a leak on the member's side that is not caught IF the member does not periodically read the meter to see if the usage is normal.
