City of Modesto Customers Can Now Pay Their Water Bills Using Smartphones With Check’s Mobile App


The City of Modesto now offers customers the ability to pay their water bills using their smartphones with a mobile app called Check.

Modesto has partnered with Check, a mobile bill payment company, to provide their customers with a more convenient way to pay for water service. With Check, customers can pay their water bill anytime, anywhere and using a wide variety of payment methods, including all major credit cards.

Unlike bank bill payment services, Check’s free mobile app can be used to pay any bill anytime, anywhere and with any payment method. Giving customers a complete view into their personal finances across multiple providers, the top-rated app makes it simple to see balances, view transactions, and make payments on the fly from a mobile device.

"We are very pleased to offer more convenience to our valued customers," said Leslie Curtin, Customer Services Manager. "Mobile apps are an increasingly popular method to complete tasks, and we are always looking for new ways to innovate and benefit from improved technology. Check is an easy, convenient way for customers to take care of their bills."

As an incentive, Check is offering $5 off a customer's first City water bill when they pay using Check. To get started, customers can visit Modesto’s website check.me/Modesto or visit Google Play or the iTunes App Store to download the Check app for free.

Traditional payment options, such as paper checks and bank "auto pay," are still available, along with phone and internet pay.
