Online payments

The City of Big Rapids offers electronic payment options for various municipal services including parking tickets, utility bills, and property tax bills. 


Credit Card or Debit Card Payment

We have partnered with a credit card processing agency to provide you the option to pay your utility bills, parking tickets, and property tax bills via credit card. There is a 3% "convenience fee" applied to utility bills and tax bills.  There is a flat rate of $3.50 applied to all parking tickets. We accept all major credit cards.

Please write down all confirmation numbers provided to you at the end of a payment session and keep the confirmation numbers for your records.

You can quickly access and download a copy of the report without leaving your home or office.
