The City of Hayward recently installed two payment kiosks—one inside and one outside of City Hall—to make paying water and other City bills and fees more convenient. The machines allow for cash, check, and credit or debit card payments with no processing charges for any bill that is generated by the City of Hayward.
The kiosk is located on the exterior of City Hall facing City Hall plaza, at 777 B Street in Hayward, is accessible and operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A second kiosk inside City Hall on the first floor near the guard station is accessible weekdays when City Hall is open to the public. The kiosks also offer both English and Spanish as a language option.
The machines provide receipts for proof of payment at the time the payment is made—but cannot provide change for cash payments. Any excess cash payment is credited to the customer account.
