Draft is a convenient way to pay the sanitation bill in order to save postage and/or a trip to City Hall. Draft is available by signing an “Authorization Agreement for Direct Payment of City Services” form and presenting a voided check to the cashier. The Authorization Agreement for Direct Payment of City Services form is available for download and printing at the bottom of this page. The City drafts between the 8th and 10th of each month and will remain in effect until the City of Vidor has received written notification to terminate draft services. If a draft is returned for insufficient funds or a closed account, the City will add a returned check fee of $30 to the account balance, which will be drafted during the next bill cycle. Once the City receives three (3) insufficient drafts and/or checks, the draft payment option will be terminated by the City and the account will be converted to cash, money order or credit card payment only for a probationary period of one (1) year. Once the probationary period has expired, in order to reactivate drafts, all new draft forms must be signed and initiated by the customer.
You may now pay your sanitation bill ONLINE. Only established customers may use the online option. Do NOT edit the amount listed, unless you are paying more than the balance due on your account. The Payment Group does charge a convenience fee for this service.
City Hall is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. except for city holidays. When making a payment, please bring the entire bill to the sanitation cashier’s window and the upper portion of the bill will be validated and returned as a receipt. Please include account number on the check. As a convenience, the City offers a night deposit box, which is located at City Hall in the rear parking lot beneath the middle light pole. If mailing a payment, the remittance address is 1395 North Main, Vidor TX 77662. Please be sure to remit the lower portion of the bill with payment by mail or night deposit box and also please include account number on the check. Payment must be in our office by the last business day of the month, or in our night deposit box before 8:00 a.m. on the first business day of the next month. Any payments received in the mail, night deposit box, or in person, after 8:00 a.m. on the first business day of the month will be considered late, and a late fee of $15.00 will be added to the monthly bill.
Per City Ordinance, a sanitation account is considered delinquent once there has been a balance billed for 60 days. The account will be placed on the pickup list on the 61st day and as a courtesy, a late notice will be mailed to the address on file. Failure to receive a late notice does not excuse payment or liability by the customer. The entire balance must be paid in full on or before the due date of the late notice and will no longer be due by the end of the month. Once the container is picked up for nonpayment, the following fees will be due in full to reinstate service: $30.00 reinstatement fee, $15.00 delivery fee, first month of service, and the entire outstanding balance including all charges incurred from the 61st day forward. If no deposit is on record when reinstating service, a deposit will also be due at that time.
Insufficient funds will also result in additional fees to the account. The insufficient fund fee is $30.00 and will be added to the account immediately once the City is notified of insufficient funds or a closed bank account. Once the City receives three (3) occurrences of insufficient items, the account will be converted to a cash, money order or credit card account only and checks and/or drafts will no longer be accepted for a probationary period of one (1) year.
