New features available for utility customers

City of Spearfish

SPEARFISH, SD – The City of Spearfish is offering new digital features for utility customers.

There are currently numerous ways for customers to pay their utility bill, including online and over the phone, and a new option available is Text to Pay.

How does it work? 

  • The customer calls the over the phone payment system at 855-312-4507 and selects the option to sign up for Text to Pay. 
  • The system sends the customer a text message to confirm signup. 
  • After the customer confirms the enrollment, the system will send the user a text message when a new balance is available on the user’s utility account. 
  • To make a payment, the customer will reply to the text with, “Pay.” 
  • The system sends the customer a confirmation text with the receipt number.

Another exciting new feature is email reminders. Online users can select “Email Reminders” (located under the “Communications” tab on their online account) to let them know a new utility bill is ready, and the email contains a one-click button to “Pay Now.”
