In this day and age when EVERYONE wants to pay their bills online so as to save postage, time and hassle, there are few businesses who do not take check and credit card payments online.

MOST do this for free, realizing that when customers do so, it saves money for the business in processing the paper bills and checks.

But not the sewage folks here in our city.

No.

They want to charge you $3.00 "convenience fee" for a $0-$100 payment. Doubles to $6 for $101-200.$3.00 more for each $100 in payment.

They can kiss my white azz.

I will drop my payments in their drop box and make them work, or spend the half a buck to mail it.

UNREAL.

Since when can the public go to a sewer authority meeting? Does anyone know when they supposedly have them?

Exactly....and that $3.000 fee is bullshit, just like the 10% late fees they charge.

Accepting a credit card payment does NOT cost a vendor $3.00 per transaction...more like $.25 or so.

Just another instance of the MACM jacking up fees to suit themselves.

They can keep paying to process my paper check instead. LOL
