City Offers Online Payments with PSN
In May 2014, the City made it available for residents and customers to make online payments. The vendor will process your payment, for a nominal fee. We can take electronic forms of payment for utility payments, water deposits, building permits, licenses, dumpster fees, etc.
The City contracted with Payment Service Network, Inc. (PSN) to offer customers the ability to make online payments using debit, credit card and eCheck payments. PSN provides you the options to call, use your smart phone app or the internet. Click the link on the right to learn more.
