At the Dearborn Administrative Center
Residents may use the 24-hour payment drop box located in the parking lot of the Dearborn Administrative Center, located at 16901 Michigan Ave. Place your bill and check (no cash please) in a sealed envelope and place it in the secure payment box. Drop box payments are picked up weekdays, Monday through Friday, at 8 a.m..
When you use the mail, drop box payment options or stand in line at the DAC, your canceled check will serve as your receipt. Because the canceled check is proof of payment, the Treasury Division no longer stamps bills.
