Payments

 

Due to COVID-19, our primary concern is the health and safety of our customers and staff. 

With that in mind, we are preparing for the possibility of temporarily closing the City Hall lobby at 200 S. Rusk, Gainesville, TX should there be more restrictions recommended by the CDC. Until then, our lobby remains open for all services with the recommendation to explore our other methods of payment through our various options. We are now allowing payments by phone and credit card charges without a service fee. We have posted more forms available to you online, should you have any questions please email Sherry Wilson, Customer Service Supervisor, at SWilson@cogtx.org

There are several ways Payments and Services may be taken care of at this time to serve the needs of our customers that are listed below.

MAKING A PAYMENT

Please keep in mind, when making a payment by mail or night drop we recommend that a money order or a check is used instead of cash. 

If you prefer to mail your payment, you may send it to:
City of Gainesville
PO Box 1399
Gainesville, TX 76241

For questions, please call (940) 668-4500.

NIGHT DROP

A large green night drop box is located just past the pneumatic tube. Payments can be dropped into this box anytime day or night. Temporarily at this time for your convenience, we will be checking the night drop box several times throughout the day and posting your payments.

DRIVE THROUGH

The drive-through is located at 200 S. Rusk on the east side of the building (in the back).  Through the drive-through you will be able to pay with cash and we will temporarily be accepting payment by card as well.  We have a pneumatic tube that sends us your payments (exactly the same as a bank) open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

AUTOMATIC BANK DRAFT

Please fill out the appropriate City of Gainesville Automatic Bank Draft Authorization Agreement form and mail it, put it in night-drop or bring it by the drive through along with a voided check.

ONLINE BILL PAY

Online bill pay is a service that is offered through your bank generally free to customers.  You can set up your payment for your utilities and schedule when the payment should be made on your banks website.  You can contact your bank for more information about this service.

CREDIT CARD

Credit card payments may be made online or over the phone. Visa, Master Card, Discover and American Express are accepted. If you wish to make a payment online, click the icon below or here.  You will need your account number and customer number.

PLEASE NOTE:

**TEMPORARILY AT THIS TIME DUE TO COVID-19 THE 3.5% ELECTRONIC PAYMENT FEE THAT IS NORMALLY APPLIED TO ALL CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS WILL BE WAIVED.**
