City of Anamosa The City of Anamosa is excited to offer online utility bill payments. A link to the payment portal can be found on the homepage of the City's website and also at the bottom of this post. For the duration of the COVID-19 outbreak we highly recommend that customers take advantage of the online payment portal. When you enter the payment portal for the first time, you will need to click "register now". To set up your account you will need your utility account number and the name on the account. Both those items can be found on the bill you receive in the mail. If you need help using online bill payment, please contact City Hall at (319) 462-6055. There are no fees for the customer when using an electronic check. There are transaction fees associated with using a credit or debit card. Those fees are paid directly to the payment processor and do not go to the City of Anamosa.
