3.30.020 Payment requirements and additional fees.

The city reserves the right to charge an amount in excess of the fees in this chapter, when the stated fees do not cover the city’s costs.

(1) Payment Methods. The city is authorized to accept payments by credit and debit card for payment of nonutility city-imposed fees, fines, rates and charges. A payer desiring to pay by one of these methods may be required to bear the cost of processing the transaction in an amount to be determined by the finance department. Such determination shall be based on the actual cost incurred by the city including handling, collection, discount, disbursing, and accounting for the transaction.

(2) Authorization to Set Limits. The finance director or city administrator is authorized to approve the acceptance of credit cards or debit cards by a city department for the payment of nonutility city imposed fees, fines, rates, and charges. No department shall accept credit or debit cards without such approval. The finance department is further authorized to establish appropriate internal control procedures and set any limitations concerning the acceptance of these alternative payment methods on participating departments.

(3) Each fund authorized to use one of the alternative payment methods shall be responsible for the associated costs. The finance department will establish the accounting system to track associated costs with the use of the alternative payment methods and will charge the costs back to the accepting fund on a monthly basis.
