The City of Lawton is updating its online utility payment and services website. The new and improved portal will launch on Monday, March 21st (03-21-22). The updated system by Tyler Technologies' Munis Utility Billing CCS (Citizen Self Service) in conjunction with Liberty National Bank will be far superior to the current system. It will be a one-stop-shop for not only paying your utility bill but all kinds of other services as well.

With the newly updated site, you'll be able to make payments, check both current and past water bills, payment history, and even submit service requests and review the status of requests. You'll also be able to get real-time details on your meter and water usage. Sounds like an amazing site and a lot better than what we're currently using. You can get additional details below from the City of Lawton press release:

The BIG QUESTION that needs to be answered and the one I'm sure you're asking right now is "What about services charges?" That's the one thing that's not covered above and honestly the first thing I looked for and wanted to be answered. Will the current charges for online payments remain in place? Will they be the same amount or more? Maybe we'll all get lucky and the service charges will go completely away. I seriously doubt it, but it would be awesome if they did. Who knows, it could happen...Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Along with the new and improved utility payment and account website/portal, the City of Lawton is also updating the bill itself. They'll be making some changes to the water bill with how it looks and reads. You'll get more information about usage and a better breakdown of charges and costs. You can click here to see a sample of the new updated City of Lawton water bill. All the changes are supposed to take place and the new system should be up and running on (03-21-22). You'll need to make sure you re-submit all your payment options and account information to be able to access and use the new system when it launches.
