MAYVILLE – County Clerk, Larry Barmore, has announced that the county clerk’s office is now accepting credit cards as a means of payment along with checks and cash.
Customers can now use their Visa, Master Card, Discover or Amex card to pay for recordings and filings – as well as the usual payment methods.
“Customers have been asking for some time to be able to use a credit card for payment and I am happy to say that the County Clerk’s office has finally moved into the 21st century,” Barmore said. “Many people no longer carry cash and a credit card is a convenient payment method. Credit cards are already accepted as payment in thousands of establishments throughout the county and now the County Clerk’s office can be counted as one of them.”
County law says that any fees charged for the credit card usage are borne by the user, so there is a 2.5 percent fee on top of the amount of the charge.
There is also a minimum charge of $20 for any card usage.
