Reminder: Reinstitution of Credit Card Fees July 1, 2021

Posted on: June 21st, 2021 by nard

Beginning July 1 , 2021, the City of Georgetown will resume charging a service fee of 2.75% of your payment for Utility related transactions. All other transactions (Business License, Permits, etc) will have a service fee of 2.95%. This fee will be added to all credit or debit card transactions. The fees will go directly to our processing company for their services. Please note: To avoid service fees the City of Georgetown has a Bank Draft Program. Because of this transition the City will not be able to accept credit cards at all on June 29th and 30th. This includes in-house and online. Therefore, we encourage you to make payments before June 29th to avoid late fees or cutoffs or with checks or cash during those two days.
