Credit Card or Debit Card Payment
We have partnered with a credit card processing agency to provide you the option to pay your utility bills, parking tickets, and property tax bills via credit card. There is a 3% "convenience fee" applied to utility bills and tax bills. There is a flat rate of $3.50 applied to all parking tickets. We accept all major credit cards.
Please write down all confirmation numbers provided to you at the end of a payment session and keep the confirmation numbers for your records.
An Accident Report
As an involved party in an accident, ordering a copy of the report is easy with LexisNexis® Police Reports. Eliminate the need to drive to the police department, find parking and stand in line to request a copy of your accident report. Save time and order from a secure website. You can quickly access and download a copy of the report without leaving your home or office.
Parking tickets can be paid by putting the payment inside the envelope and either mailing it or dropping it in the drop box in the foyer of the department; or by paying in person at the department; or paying over the phone with a credit card. Credit cards will be subjected to a 3% fee with a minimum of $2.
Please have your account number ready; it can be found on the right-hand side of your bill, ex. 1-123-123456-12. You will be asked to establish a password for your account. Once your account is established, your payment information will be stored and can be used to make future payments. If you wish to change your payment method, you will need to do so before you make your next payment.
If your account is scheduled for shutoff due to non-payment, please call (231)592-4005 to report the confirmation number of your payment.
