Taylorville residents will have another option when it comes to paying their water bill. The city council approved the purchase of two encrypted credit card readers for the Water Department at Monday’s meeting for the purpose of accepting credit card payments towards water bills. Credit cards will be accepted over the counter with a 2.25 percent surchage fee, and online with a 2.5 percent convenience fee.
Taylorville Mayor Bruce Barry says this purchase is about helping Taylorville residents pay their bills.
Barry says it shouldn’t be long before the water department is able to start accepting credit card payments.
