Pay Your Bill at VIST BANK on Rt 183
BTMA customers can also make their payments in person at the VIST Bank branch on Rt 183 at West Leesport Road, but to make your payment there you MUST have your BTMA bill, or a copy of it.
Put your check in the Drop Box At Township Building
A drop box has been installed outside the building on the wall next to the front door of the Bern Twp. Municipal Building, but please pay by check, not cash if you use the drop box.
The BTMA Board is committed to keeping user fees steady for our 900+ customers so we try to keep our running costs low. (Rates for sewer customers went down just over a year ago.) We have two part-time employees who are always willing to answer questions for you.

Are you cleaning up after cats or kids?
Please do not throw “flushable” cat litter or disposable wet wipes into your toilet. These items may look “flushable” but they do not dissolve or disintegrate.
They cause blockages and other problems in sewer systems, and these problems are very expensive to fix, which will cause the cost of your sewer rates to increase.
So please be considerate and throw the “flushables” into the trash, or these items will wind up costing you and other sewer users a lot of money.
