Utility Billing

The City of New Hope utility bill is sent to customers at the end of each month and includes charges for water, sewer, recycling, storm drainage, street lighting and a water testing fee assessed by the State of Minnesota. This charge covers the regular testing of our water supply to ensure it meets high-quality standards.

The rates for all utilities are determined based on the funding needed to cover operation, maintenance, and capital costs. The rates are reviewed annually to ensure that they are adequate to cover current and anticipated expenses. The City of New Hope does not operate a private water supply well; instead, we purchase our water from Minneapolis.

Late and Returned Check Fees

Late fees are applied unless payment is received by the billing due date. A 5% late fee is charged on all overdue payments. Additionally, a service charge of $30.00 is applied for any returned check, regardless of the amount or reason for return. Please ensure that all payments are made on or before the due date to avoid additional charges.

Pay Online: Automatic and One-Time Payments

Automatic payment through the self-service Invoice Cloud provides residents an efficient way to automatically pay their monthly utility bill from the City. Automatic payments are deducted from the designated account on the payment due date. Automatic payments may be made using Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, Venmo or electronic check.

Beginning July 1, all online utility bill payments made with a credit or debit card are subject to a 3% credit card fee. Payments made using a checking account on the City's Invoice Cloud payment system will not be subject to this fee.

Tenants/renters should NOT sign up for these online services as the utility bill is registered to the property owner.

Enroll in automatic payment using Invoice Cloud at the link below:

 When an automatic payment is successfully set up, "Pre-authorized payment of (amount) will be drawn from your bank on month/date/year" will be displayed at the top of the monthly utility bill. Until this message is displayed, account holders must continue to pay the bill as usual.

Note: Signing up for automatic payment overrides any other autopayment previously set up with the City.

Cancel or Change an Automatic Payment Plan
To cancel or change an automatic payment plan, account holders must log into the Invoice Cloud system.

  1. Once logged into the account, select “My Profile” on the top right of the screen.
  2. Scroll to “Payment Methods” using the dropdown.
  3. Delete any old payment methods and add the updated account information. The City accepts several payment options such as debit, credit (Visa or MasterCard), and checking accounts.

It is your responsibility as the owner to update your online account with changes to your account that may impact the Automatic Payment plan. If funds are unavailable or the bank rejects the payment request, the account will be assessed an NSF fee of $30 and auto-pay will be canceled.

One-Time Online Payment
Those who prefer not to sign up for automatic billing can still pay their utility bill online through Invoice Cloud. Make a one-time payment by Visa, Mastercard, Paypal, Venmo or electronic check. Starting July 1, all online utility bill payments made with a credit or debit card are subject to a 3% credit card fee. Payments made using a checking account on the City's Invoice Cloud payment system will not be subject to this fee.
