Payment Options

On-Line Bill Pay 
Payment of utility charges may be made online with a credit card, debit card, or check. The city’s online provider is Secure Pay. This guide will help you create an account, otherwise click the icon below to go to our on-line payment portal:

Online payments take one business day to post in your online account.  If you make a payment and are not sure if it went through, DO NOT make a second payment.  Please contact the Galion Utility Office for verification of the transaction, or opt in to receive verification emails through your online account.

From Your Bank Account
You may pay directly from your bank account. The due amount is electronically withdrawn from your bank account each month on the due date. Payments will not show until the next business day following your payment. A bill is still provided to you so that you’ll know in advance what amount will be withdrawn. To enroll, please complete and return the enrollment form. A voided check must be included with the completed form so that we use correct banking information.

In Person

Payments are also accepted in person at 115 Harding Way East between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. You may pay by check, credit/debit card, money order, or cash.

By Mail
Mailed payments should be sent to the following address:

City of Galion
Utility Office
PO BOX 820
Galion, Ohio 44833-0820

For your convenience in making payments after hours, there is night drop box at our office, 115 Harding Way East.  Please do not place cash in the drop box.

SPECIAL NOTE: The City of Galion does NOT accept payments over the phone. While we do sometimes need to call customers, you will never be asked to make a payment by giving credit card or banking information over the phone. If you are asked to provide this information, the call is likely a scam. Please hang up and report it to the Police Department at 419-468-9111.
