Utility Bills Have a New Payment Address

The City of St. Charles is in the process of moving to a lockbox system to process utility bill payments.  The only change customers may notice is a different return mailing address on the utility bill.

Utility billing staff will continue to handle all customer service calls and issues, just as before. Read more »
