Online payment for utility bills now available for Cottage Grove residents


Paying the monthly utility bill is now just a click away for Cottage Grove residents.

At the beginning of the month, Citizen Access, a new online billing service, went live throughout the city giving residents a free option to pay their city utility bill online.

By logging onto Citizen Access, residents can create a user profile that contains their email address and account number. It accepts debit or credit card payments and uses a secure third party portal.

Are you a newspaper subscriber but you don't have a Digital Access account yet?

You will need your subscription account number and phone number. Not sure if you have an account? Email us at and we can help you.
