Town of Selma Utilities offers an Automatic Bank Draft Program and an Equal Payment Plan Program for the citizens of Selma.
The Automatic Bank Draft Program: A free service that allows you to pay your utility bill and save time each month. This program ensure that your payment will be credited to your account in a timely manner, and you’ll save on postage and paper.
The Equal Payment Plan Agreement: Requires customers to have an account with Selma Utilities for at least 24 billing periods and have excellent credit history. Those customers may file an application for this payment plan during the months of April or October. The equal payments during an 11-month period are based on the previous 12-month consumption. The 12th month will be used to settle the account by either credit or final balance due.
If you have questions about your bill or you need more information about any of these options, please call Customer Service at (919) 965-9841

Upon account closing, the deposit will be applied toward the customer’s utility account. Remaining funds will be used against any amounts owed on any accounts the customer may have with the Town. A refund check for any remaining balance will be mailed to the customer’s forwarding address, if provided when disconnection is requested. The Town of Selma bills for utility consumption used prior to the actual billing date, so most customers disconnecting services will have at least one more bill for a full month’s services and a final bill for a partial month’s service.
Any customer without the minimum deposit on file, whose service has been transferred or has been involuntarily terminated (i.e. – nonpayment, returned check, meter tampering, or any other such reason) shall be required to pay the full deposit or update the existing deposit to the minimum requirement as specified above prior to reconnecting services. Deposits will not be refunded after termination of services until all final bills are paid.
Utility customers wishing to transfer their service from one Town of Selma location to another must complete and sign a work order, provide a copy of the new lease, an updated form of identification, update the application information, and pay the connection fee. The customer will also be required to update the deposit at this time unless the customer has had 24 months of good pay history with the Town. When transfer paperwork is being completed, a “connect” date at the new address and “disconnect” date at the previous address must be given. Services at two addresses may not “overlap” for more than 14 days. The customer is still responsible for any outstanding balances at the previous address. Failure to pay these bills will result in involuntary disconnection at the new address.
