How: Ways to Pay
Cash, personal checks, money orders, debit cards, and credit cards are accepted at all four locations.
If paying with cash, please understand that large volumes of coins must be rolled in bank wrappers before they will be accepted. Also, a convenience fee is added to all card transactions. For your convenience, a 24-hour drop box is located at each Treasurer's Office location.
Please be advised that we process all checks electronically the day they are received in our office. Electronic processing expedites the transfer of funds from your bank account and eliminates the amount of "float" time on your payment.
The Treasurer's office does not accept PayPal, PopMoney or other App-based payment options.
Mail or 24-Hour Drop Box
Personal check, money order, or certified funds are acceptable in the mail or drop-box. Not responsible for cash put in the drop box. Drop boxes are located near the front door of each satellite Treasurer's Office location, near the front and back doors of City Hall, and in the parking lot on the eastern side of the City Hall building.
