RECOMMENDED COUNCIL ACTION: Passage of a resolution authorizing the City Manager to execute an agreement for the acceptance of credit and debit cards for the payment of various fees and charges collected by the City.
At this time the only methods of payment for any fee or charge is by check or cash. Many of our customers have inquired about the use of credit cards, especially for recreation programs and payment of utility bills. The use of credit cards for recreation program registration will enable our residents to register without having to come into the office, thus eliminating foot traffic. The use of credit cards could also possibly reduce the number of return checks, which would eliminate the process of trying to recover funds.
There is a fee that the City would be charged for the use of credit cards and departments have budgeted this expense as a cost of doing business.
