Utility Billing

How to make a payment?

Please be aware that delinquent fees and shutoffs for non-payment are currently suspended until further notice.

The City of Banning is committed to working with households and businesses as they stabilize and recover from the COVID19 related crisis. We will continue to monitor and reevaluate as this situation evolves, to better determine when the suspension of utility disconnection due to non-payment will end.  We encourage customers to pay as much as they can and as often as possible to avoid having large past due balances. For customers who need a payment extension and/or a payment arrangement, please call (951)922-3185 Monday through Friday from 8: 00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for more information. 

City Hall is now open for over-the-counter payments; however, face coverings are required to enter the building. All customers are expected to comply with the social distancing guidelines set in place. As we move forward in the current situation, we strongly encourage customers to use one of our alternative payment methods:

  • Online – Customers can make a “one-time payment” using a Visa or MasterCard.

  • Drop box – Located in the Police Department parking lot, customers can use a personal check, cashier’s check, or money order (made out to City of Banning) to make payment. Please ensure either form of payment lists the account holder’s name and/or address. 
  • By mail – mail to City of Banning, PO Box 985, Banning, CA 92220. Customers can use a personal check, cashier’s check, or money order (made out to City of Banning) to make payment.  

Using these alternative payment methods will help minimize the exposure and potential spread ofCOVID19.
