Paying water and sewer bills is expected to soon get easier for Oakdale residents, who will now have the option of paying their bills online, over the telephone or on a smartphone app, city officials said.
Utility customers can pay their bills by logging on to the city’s website, www.ci.oakdale.mn.us, by downloading the PSN (Payment Service Network) app or by calling PSN’s toll-free automated service line at 877-885-7968.
“Our customers can now pay by credit or debit card as well as make electronic payments from checking or savings,” finance director Suzy Warren said in a news release. “Customers can pay immediately, schedule payments, or set up Auto Pay for the amount of the bill or a set budgeted amount.”
Mayor Carmen Sarrack added: “It’s great to do something that benefits our residents while, at the same time, is kinder to the environment.”
Customers still have the option of having their bills sent by mail, officials said.
For more information, contact the city at 651-501-5309, 651-730-2710 or 651-730-2714 or PSN at 866-917-7368.

The training facility is being funded by the team, officials said.
