When you set up a bill payment due to the Treasurer's Office using your bank's online bill pay, there are many factors that could slow the delivery of your payment to this office: 1. The bank creates a paper check to mail to us. The Treasurer does not receive an electronic payment file. 2. The bank holds the checks for several days to combine multiple check payments from our customers using the same bank to cut down on their mailing costs. 3. The USPS announced that first class mail that used to take 3 days for delivery would now be a minimum 5 day delivery. We are finding that it is even longer than that.
We recommend an alternate payment method if you are close to a tax due date to avoid penalties or a utility due date to prevent your water service from being disconnected.
