City plans to pass credit card fee to customers

May 19, 2010 9:43:00 AM - thestate.com

Columbia water customers who pay their bills online would have to pay a convenience fee under a proposal in the city's 2010-11 budget.

It cost $1, plus 1.7 percent of the bill, for every bill paid online with a credit card. The city has been paying those fees.

But as the number of online customers has increased, so has the fee.

The city has spent $150,000 on the fee since July 2009, and city officials expect to spend $300,000 next budget year.
