Bank Drafting Process

After we receive your information, we will set up automatic bank drafting with the financial institution of your choice. Once your bank drafting is complete, your billing statement will be noted "Paid by Draft." You will continue to receive a monthly water bill, which will indicate a "due date."

Note: Please pay any current bill and allow 30 to 45 days for automatic drafting to begin. Your bank draft will be completed on the due date of your monthly bill. (No drafting will occur on weekends or holidays.) Please be sure to maintain sufficient funds in your account to cover the automatic withdrawal each month. If your automatic draft is returned for insufficient funds, your financial institution will assess a penalty  and the City of Mathis will assess a penalty  fee of $30 that would apply for a dishonored check.


Should you wish to cancel your automatic bank draft, please contact our office at 361-547-3343.
