Average Monthly Payment Program for Residential Customers

Knowing how much to budget each month for your utility bill can make paying your bills much easier. The City of Forest Grove's Average Monthly Payment Program (AMP) offers this convenience by averaging your monthly utility bills, so that you pay the same fixed amount each month. The Utility Billing system will determine your monthly payment by calculating this average then adding a percentage for proposed rate increase(s). For additional information, to qualify and receive an application call 503-992-3221.
