Implementing a Province Wide Municipal Electronic Payment Option

Year: 2012


Whereas it is becoming common practice to accept payment of invoices by using direct debit and/or credit cards; and Whereas an increasing amount of ratepayers are requesting the ability to pay utility bills and taxes by direct debit and/or credit card methods of payment; and Whereas the banking costs of providing such services is excessive for smaller towns and villages; Therefore, be it resolved the Saskatchewan Urban Municipality Association lobby the financial institutions to provide a standard municipal direct debit and/or credit card payment option that would accommodate all villages, town and cities, and that we request the Province of Saskatchewan to provide reimbursement for the provisions of such services under their municipal grant funding program.
