With the direct debit – Automatic Funds Transfer (AFT) payment option, you can now pay your utility bill each month by automatic deduction from your checking or savings account. In addition, there will be NO additional cost for participating in this service.
Our goal at the City of Coral Springs is to make the signing up and maintaining of our AFT program as simple as possible.
- You will still get a monthly bill. The City will send you your monthly bill as always showing the usual billing information, as well as the amount of the payment that will be automatically deducted from your checking or savings account on the due date that is printed on your bill.
- You need only to remember to subtract the amounts of the water utility bill from your checkbook balance on the payment due date specified on the bill. The withdrawal from your bank account will appear on your next available bank statement.

Should you have any questions related to enrolling in the City’s new Direct Debit/Automatic Funds Transfer (AFT) program, please call (954)-344-1825.
In addition, please note that once you sign up with the Direct Debit/Automatic Funds Transfer program and a bill is processed by the City, you cannot make any changes to the bill for that particular period. ALL adjustments, if approved, will not be seen until the next bill is printed. For example, let’s say you note a problem on an invoice that is processed on June 5, 2004 for the period of May 2 to June 2. If approved, we will credit your account for that amount and the credit amount will show up on your next invoice.
