UTILITY PAYMENT CHANGES
August 03, 2017 (Spring Lake, NC). Starting October 1, 2017, the Town of Spring Lake will begin levying a $1.50 convenience fee for all payments made online. This does not include payments via automatic bank draft. The Town offers residents an array of methods in which to pay their utility bills. Payments may be paid in person at the Revenue Collections window located inside Town Hall or at the drive-thru window off of Ruth Street. There are two (2) drop box locations where payments may be deposited – one in the parking lot across from Town Hall and the other at the drive thru window. Payments may be mailed or residents may sign up for automatic bank draft. All previous payments are free.Starting October 1, 2017, online payments made from any computer or mobile device to include the Town’s app, will be accessed a $1.50 convenience fee. Previously, this fee has been absorbed 100% by the Town. It is a fee charged to process credit card payments via electronic means. In order to keep other expenses low, the Town voted during the last budget process to pass the fee along to residents. “It was not an easy decision to make,” says Tad Davis, Town Manager. “We want to keep costs down for all residents and for the Town. Paying bills online has become a part of our daily routine. After careful consideration and much research, we determined that this was the best course of action to take. We feel most of our residents are used to such fees and will appreciate our effort to be good stewards in managing the resources.” Residents may continue and are encouraged to pay online with a credit card from any internet connected device including the Towns’ app, 24 hours a day/7 days a week. No payments are taken over the phone. If anyone has any questions on the available payment options or their water bill, they may reach the Revenue Department at (910) 703-8911.
