Clark County Auditor George Sodders is spearheading the use of credit cards to make payments via the web for licensing fees, utility bills and other payments that are approved by county departments.
Sodders recommended to county commissioners the adoption of a resolution giving departments the option to accept credit card payments.
“I think this is a real convenience for taxpayers and there is no additional cost to the county for providing this service,” Sodders said. “In addition, these services are proven to be safe and secure for taxpayers, and there is no hassle with returned checks,” Sodders explained.
Upon the recommendation of Sodders, County Commissioners unanimously passed a resolution today, paving the way to solicit bids from potential providers.
