Pay Utility Bills
The City of Duncanville is working with our utility billing vendor to locate and resolve an issue impacting customers who have set up recurring automatic payments. This issue, which is on the vendor’s end, is currently preventing automatic payments from being processed.
If you are a customer who has set up recurring automatic payments, your payment will be processed once we have resolved this issue.
Utility customers may receive reminders and delinquency notices, which are auto-generated by the system. As we continue to transition to this new system, Duncanville Utility customers will not be penalized with late fees or shut-offs.
We apologize for the inconvenience as we work quickly to resolve this issue.

Our utility rates are found to be some of the lowest in the metroplex. Meters are read every 28-34 days (varying due to weekends and holidays). The utility invoices are mailed each Wednesday based on cycle (Cycle 1 is the first Wednesday, Cycle 2 is the second, etc.) and will be due 19 days later.

Full payments on WARRANTS may be paid online between the hours of 8am and 4pm, M-F, excluding holidays. The Duncanville Municipal Court strongly advises you to keep your receipt of payment on your person for 72hrs, as there will be a delay between the time of payment and the recall of the warrant(s).

ATTENTION: For cases where a plea has not been previously entered, by paying online you are entering a plea of no contest to the violation and you are agreeing to waive your right to a jury trial.

Alarm Permit fees are available for both commercial and residential alarm systems. Renewals will be for a period of one (1) year. Failure to secure a permit from the City for an active alarm system may result in fines up to $500.00 for each offense and for each and every day such a violation shall constitute a separate offense.
