Kilmarnock offers the convenience of on-line bill paying of utility bills for Water and Sewer Services (due every 2 months).
For utility payments, we now accept VISA, Mastercard, Discover and American Express credit cards as well as STAR, PULSE, NYCE and VISA debit cards on-line. “E checks” or electronic check transactions are also available and have the lowest convenience fee.
Also, you may now pay by credit or debit cards at the Town office. However, at this time, we are not able to accept American Express.
Whether you’re paying on line or in person, when using a credit or debit card there is a “convenience fee” applied to each transaction. These fees are charged by the credit and debit card companies and their processors.
Virginia municipalities are not allowed, by state law, to absorb these charges so they are necessarily passed on to the payer.
A drop box is located outside of the Town Office located at 1 North Main Street. This drop box is checked daily during regular office hours, Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.. The Town will not be responsible for cash.
