Change in the Ridgway Borough Utility Billing


In order to provide better service to our customers, the Borough of Ridgway has selected Diversified Technology Inc. as the provider of billing software and services. The changeover is effective beginning November 1, 2018.

Making Payments:


Walk-in and mail in payments will continue to be received at Farmers National Bank at 173 Main Street, Ridgway PA 15853. For online banking payments, be certain the account number is also included.


Payments can also be made automatically through ACH transfers from your bank account. If you are already an ACH customer, nothing changes. If you would like to become an ACH paying customer, applications are available at the Borough office at 108 Main Street Ridgway. This option is encouraged.

Credit Card Payments can be made through the borough Web site ridgwayborough.com.


New features include: Receiving bills by email if requested, duplicate bills for landlords and tenants if requested, and online access to your account information and payment by phone at 888-287-0526.


Post Card Format: The new post card is different in that the top portion is returned with the payment and the bottom portion is kept for your records. Notices are on the back of the bill.

Due Date of the billing cycle remains the same. Bills will come out the beginning of the month. Payments are due by the 21st of each month.


Shut-off: On time payment assures continued service. Failure to pay on time results in termination of service until account is paid.

To change account status and make inquiries, call the Borough office at (814)776-1125.
