Crothersville Clerk-Treasurer Terry Richey (left) was the first to pay her utilities bill electronically last week. Accepting her credit card is first deputy Michele Teipen.
The town has been working for several months to allow utility customers to pay their monthly bill using a credit/debit card, calling in a payment or paying through a link at the town’s website.
Heartland Payment Systems is administering the electronic payment process which got underway March 2. A 3% convenience fee will be added top each electronic payment.
Residents can call 844-677-9446 with their credit card information or utility customers can being their card into the town office like the clerk-treasurer and pay their water,sewer, trash and recycling bill.
Beginning in April utility customers will be able to go to the town’s website at www.crothersville.net and click on a link to pay their utility bill online.
